(N.Morgan) The seismic activity in California and the New Madrid have been escalating for the last couple of months. The intensity of some of the earthquakes, especially in California are of unseen before proportions. What could this mean for our country and the world? The Ring Of Fire is on fire, with activity all along the ridges. It has been 20 years since Southern California experienced a major earthquake, a powerful 6.7-magnitude temblor that rolled through Northridge, killing 57 people. But this stretch of seismic calm, though welcome in obvious ways, has undermined efforts to force Los Angeles to deal with what officials describe as potentially lethal deficiencies in earthquake preparation.
That may be changing. Since two back-to-back earthquakes Friday evening — a relatively small one with a magnitude of 3.6, followed by a long and rolling 5.1 quake — Los Angeles has been shaken by nearly 175 smaller aftershocks. It is the first time this area has suffered an earthquake in excess of 5 magnitude since 1997, and it comes two weeks after a 4.4 earthquake jolted residents awake.
The New Madrid activity has been a bombardment of small quakes. According to the USGS, a 2.5 magnitude earthquake happened around 6 p.m. about 6 miles south, southwest of New Madrid, Mo. and 26 miles south of Sikeston, Mo.
