The rumbling started Monday morning deep under the Salton Sea. A rapid succession of small earthquakes ‚ÄĒ three measuring above magnitude 4.0 ‚ÄĒ began rupturing near Bombay Beach, continuing for more than 24 hours. Before the swarm started to fade, more than 200 earthquakes had been recorded.
The temblors were not felt over a very large area, but they have garnered intense interest ‚ÄĒ and concern ‚ÄĒ among seismologists. It marked only the third time since earthquake sensors were installed there in 1932 that the area had seen such a swarm, and this one had more earthquakes than the events of 2001 and 2009.
The quakes occurred in one of California‚Äôs most seismically complex areas. They hit in a seismic zone just south of where the mighty San Andreas fault ends. It is composed of a web of faults that scientists fear could one day wake up the nearby San Andreas from its long slumber....
Well, the Colima volcano in western Mexico is already erupting, so that must be a sign of things to come, don't you think? Others might say the Yankees not making it to the playoffs this season is a definite sign of the end of the world!
