Earthquakes in LA don't reach up to San Francisco. The way the fault runs there is funny: the earthquakes are more localised.

On the other hand, the tectonic plate on this side of the country is huge. If the New Madrid fault trembles in Missouri, it will shatter glass in Boston. smiley - laugh

In 1812, there was an earthquake in New Madrid. It made all the church bells ring in Boston. It was two weeks before anybody there found out why. smiley - doh

is it split in parts of sorts ? so 1 fault line doesn't connect with the next down as such ?

No. San Andreas is on the *west coast*. The east side is New Madrid and Reelfoot. The tectonic plate on this side is so huge that a 7 magnitude would be catastrophic compared to LA.

In 1811/12, the Mississippi River flowed backward for three days. smiley - headhurts

I have a lot of sympathy for Southern California, but I hope the agitation doesn't spread. It could be a lot worse.

I have to go: suppertime. You take care, rest up! smiley - run

I didn't go out today, as one of my mates (uses a mobile scooter thingy) usually comes round for a cuppa, but he didn't call today ? I'll find out why if he calls on Sunday

Sasha and I were following a Twitter flap: a doctor from Ireland went to visit the Auschwitz Museum in Poland with his son. His son uses a wheelchair. One of the guides tried to say 'you can't take that in here'. He posted on Twitter, and got an apology and some accommodation. smiley - smiley
