Many of you know I've followed the earthquake topic for quite a while. My primary interest is the transition between the San Andreas Fault (SAF) and the Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) since I living on shaky ground. I do not see ANY nexus between current seismic activity levels and Matthew 24 (so let's not go there).
I post this for those of us that find interest in the rumbles of the Earth.

My observations indicate there is an imbalance between the levels of activity and forces of the seen in the West Pacific in contrast with the Eastern Pacific. Experts agree the area San Andreas is locked south of San Francisco.
I’ve understood the Coriolis effect from my study of weather, The Coriolis Effect: A (Fairly) Simple Explanation yet, I still find it mindboggling that just as water flushed in a toilet in the northern hemisphere rotates counterclockwise and in the southern hemisphere it rotates clockwise , so do the Tectonic Plates are subject to that force.

Since I’ve been following things seismic for a couple of decades, I’ll go on record with a hunch……
Cascadia is ripe! And so is the San Andreas!
Either fault could trigger the other…..Then again there is that pesky Mendcino triple junction playing the spoiler.
