    Please make that Saturday, not Sunday. Last time I checked CBS wasn’t into prophecy business.

    Unless CBS San Fran news is just catching up, reporting on an event that happened on a previous Sunday.

    The ground shook because of a collapse where water had been removed from beneath the surface. There was no fault and no fault movement. The earth shakes for many reasons: landslides, objects falling from the sky, mine collapses, collapses where water or oil have been removed and then there are the “real” earthquakes that happen when magma flows from the core of the earth, enters the fault, and if there is enough stress on the fault, it adjusts, and thus, the earthquake. The Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989 was preceded by a magma flow that could be detected by animals and a few of us humans. It was deep and the aftershocks followed along the faultline. Magma flows that that I now detect that could trigger earthquakes are: 30 miles west of Red Bluff; 10 miles SE of Eureka, CA; near the coast of the CA-OR border; Mt. St. Helens; Yellowstone NP; Lassen Peak, 50 miles east of Redding; near Lake Tahoe. Note: I am able to detect the magma flows for many months, and even for more than a year, before any earthquake is triggered.

    sorry to clarify I was directed my questions to mediocre. How do the few of you humans develop this sensitivity to the magma flows beneath our Earth’s surface? With a forked stick? Just curious……..
