Record Swarm Of California Earthquakes Continues A Series Of Unusual Events That Began In Late September.........

Record Swarm Of California Earthquakes Continues A Series Of Unusual Events That Began In Late September

First it was wildfires, then it was unprecedented flooding, and now it is earthquakes.  
 
In the past two weeks alone, more than 400 earthquakes have shaken San Ramon – a small city that sits approximately 45 miles east of San Francisco.  

Never before have so many earthquakes been recorded in that area in such a short span of time.  

Standing alone, that earthquake swarm may not mean that much. But when you stand back and look at all of the unusual events that have been happening since late September, a very disturbing picture begins to emerge.



All over the planet, seismic activity seems to be increasing.  

Dozens of volcanoes around the world have recently erupted, and Afghanistan was just hit by a massive 7.5-magnitude quake. It was one of the worst earthquakes that Afghanistan has ever seen, and it is going to take months to deal with all of the damage. 

So it is alarming that right now there is record breaking earthquake activity just outside of San Francisco…

San Ramon, California, appears to have broken a new earthquake record over the last two weeks: A total of 408 small quakes have shaken the East Bay city, almost four times the record set in 2003 in half the amount of time.

"I've not felt so many tremors in decades," Mark Stone said outside a San Ramon Starbucks on Tuesday morning. "My dog, Gimmel, she's the first one to know a couple of seconds before." And his dog has been extra alert lately.
