    For Redhart, Look To The North Of Where You Live

    Post  Don in Hollister on Mon 21 Jun 2010, 11:43 pm

    Hi Red. Look at the activity north of the Garlock fault and east of the White Wolf fault. Activity has picked up a bit where the new fault is being born. Can't help but wonder if the Baja quake is triggering those quakes. A good majority of the quakes along the San Jacinto and Elsinore fault have been occurring since the Baja quake. That cluster on the Elsinore fault at the California, Mexico border is curious. It's an indication of a weak spot, but that's not a good indication that it's going to rupture.

    Of course the combination of it and the San Jacinto fault loosing up could give the San Andreas fault some room to move and we could have a 180 mile rupture. Now that would be a beaut. That segment hasn't moved for more the 300 years. Sure a lot of time for a lot of energy to have built up.

    Your being located perpendicular to it you won't get the bad shaking, but you will know that's the quake everyone has been waiting for. Come to think of it we in Hollister will know it's the quake everyone has been waiting for. Most of the energy will be directed right at us. Some of the older buildings may not make it. We have a couple of them here. Just depends on big it gets and how long it lasts. If there is supershear associated with it LA could be history.

    If it's large enough more then one fault could go. I have no idea as to which ones they will be. Take Care...Don

    Hey Don, speaking of Hollister, I was living on Lovers Lane in Hollister back when the Loma Prieta hit. I remember lotsa buildings crumbling. I had to drive into town to get my little one from preschool and was quite shocked by all the buildings that crumbled. You were there then right? Hollister took a beating for a quake that centered in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Why is that? I never paid attention to the details on that quake. All I remember is that I was in a brand new house on nice rock so we just had minor damage. I remember also picking my little baby who was sitting by the fire place out of a ring of broken glass. Not one scratch on him thank God. The other child was playing out on the lawn at preschool and didn't have to much of a fright. Love to hear a story from you on that quake in regards to Hollister. Thanks, geenee

    Hi Don!

    I dunno BUT I think the Helensdale Fault looks mighty interesting.

    The 'white wolf' swarm is also eye catching.

    Imperial is interesting but the San Jacinto will have to party first, I think. (recent swarm looks promising...)

    I am expecting a kick in the area in the first week of July.

    Idly speculating.

    wanted to mention that I liked the birth of a fault and the pillsbury piece you wrote! ( can hardly wait for your next idea!) Ma nature will hit you with it, I am certain!


    Off to bed now!

    Hi Geenee. The town of Hollister was 27 miles southeast of the epicenter of the quake. The town is also built on an alluvial plain which means any shaking is going to be magnified many times over. You saw the results of this in the Marina District in San Francisco which was filled in by the 1906 earthquake. The collapse of the Cypress freeway was a good lesson for engineers. You could see where the bridge collapsed and the part that stayed up. The part that collapsed was built on alluvial soil, the part that stayed up was built on bed rock.

    Your home on Lovers Lane was built on bed rock and that is why you had very little damage, but that is also that area is more subject to flooding then other parts of San Benito County because the water can't soak into the earth as fast as other locations. The bed rock there is close to the surface.

    The damage in Hollister would have been much worse had the rupture been towards the south instead to the north. The energy was moving away from Hollister.

    When I felt the “P” wave go though the area I knew it was a large quake and I stated counting. When the “S” wave hit I knew how far the quake was, but didn't know exactly where it centered at.

    I had two cats. One was sleeping on the couch next to me and the other had just jumped on top of the bookshelf. When the quake started it knocked the bookshelf over and Squeak took off for the bed room. She stayed under my bed for 3 days. Tangles the other kitty that was sleeping on the couch stood up and looked at me as if to say will you quick shaking the couch I'm trying to sleep. She laid back down and went back to sleep.

    That was the 2nd strongest quake I've been in. The first was the 7.5M in Niigata, Japan in 1964. I missed the 1964 Alaska quake by 6 hours. We left to fly back to our home base 6 hours before the quake occurred. However 20 hours later we were back in Alaska off loading emergency supplies and flying the injured out. What a trip that was. Take Care...Don
