SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ...
THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WEATHER AUTHORITY HAS ISSUED A EARTHQUAKE WATCH EFFECTIVE NOW THROUGH THE NEXT 48 HOURS ...
A magnitude 7.6 earthquake has struck the Mexico coastal areas this afternoon.
There are many times when a quake this close, or along our plate boundary, produces a concern for elevated earthquake activity across the Pacific Coast, California included.
Many occasions have noted this type of pattern, especially from Central America to California so this watch will be in place for the next 48 hours as this is the crucial time for the faults to be disturbed by the strong quake south of here.
Predicting earthquakes is not possible, but there may be warning signs within a pattern that help produce the type of alert such as a watch so you can make sure you have your earthquake priorities checked and stay alert during the watch period.
An earthquake watch does not mean an earthquake is forecast, but does mean there is a concern for an elevated risk on our fault-zones.
Stay tuned to the Southern California Weather Authority on the Web or on Facebook for the latest updates in the area.http://www.southerncaliforniaweatherauthority.com/watches/eqw1.html
Han activado una alerta de 48 horas desde el sismo de ayer porque si bien no es posible predecir terremotos, creen que tras el de ayer puede haber un riesgo de que se produzca otro en California.
