Earthquake Warning for California and West Coast

The recent North Carolina earthquake may have resulted from shifts in pressure caused by the early stages of hurricane Irene. Regardless, of whether this was what caused the North American tectonic plate to shift westward or some other dynamic, the fact remains that it shifted west. As a result, it is quite possible that pressure has been added at the west and southwest edges of the North American plate. While the east coast braces for hurricane Irene, the west coast could be brewing its own catastrophe.

The recent North Carolina earthquake may have resulted from shifts in pressure caused by the early stages of hurricane Irene.

As a result, it is quite possible that pressure has been added at the west and southwest edges of the North American plate. While the east coast braces for hurricane Irene, the west coast could be brewing its own catastrophe.

 With the North Carolina quake, the North American plate shifted west possibly increasing south eastward pressure where it meets the Juan de Fuco plate. At the same time where the North American meets the Caribbean plate and the Cocos plate would also have a change in pressure. Based on these possible pressure shifts an earthquake or series of earthquakes can hit anywhere from Central America along the west coast, right up to northern California.

No one knows for sure what the impact of this recent activity has been and this is one possible scenario, but if I lived along the west coast I would prepare for the possibility of an earthquake within the next month.

    Do you have any quotes from geologists? This is an very interesting theory.

    No quotes from geologists. Just my theory based on my geography background and experience in the mining and exploration industry.
