    Well Im watching the news right now.

    Apparently there was an earthquake of scale 8.8 in Chile, 130 deaths by now and counting.

    Haiti was 7.6 I think, chile was 8.8 so this was far stronger. There are tsunami alerts in hawii and mexico and surrounding areas.

    2 big earthquakes in 2 months. Wondering if California is next.
    I don't live in California but it makes me wonder since it's on a faults line.

    i think so we are supposed to be expecting "the big one" and have had mulitple earthquakes teh past few months, but then again we've been expecting "the big one" for years

    You never know. I read the thinking now is that the big quakes help to make more quakes possible on other fault lines.

    you guys should seriosly prepare for an emergency.. Because not only are you guys in a huge fault line but you guys also have yellow stone close by.

    Which can go off if a quake happens.. And well if yellow stone erupts that's strog enough to reach us here in Ga as well. So it's pretty dangerous.

    eh im not too worried, but i agree its always good to prepare yourself. Im not worried just because of how long we've been expecting "the big one" but with all of the massive earthquakes nearby it is quite possible :)

    More likely we have to worry about a tsunami hitting Hawaii from this quake.
