Scientists say they’ve recorded low frequency shaking on the ocean floor that could be the result of increasing pressure, similar to what was released during the devastating 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami.
7.0+ Magnitude Mega-Quake Possible In Berkeley Hills As Seismic Movement Links Calaveras, Hayward Faults
Seismologists now believe the Hayward Fault is actually a branch of the Calaveras Fault, meaning the faults have a much greater destructive potential in the case of a simultaneous rupture, potentially triggering a tremor stronger than the 1989 disaster.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports a 2.2 magnitude earthquake struck after 11 a.m. in Silicon Valley, just hours after a 4.2 magnitude quake hit Coalinga.

As the Bay Area marked the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake, there was no shortage of reminders of the power of Mother Nature and the promise of other big quakes to come. KCBS In Depth spoke with Dr. Richard Allen, director of the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, who is working on an earthquake warning system.
