California Is Shaken By More Than 80 Earthquakes As Chile Is Hit By The Largest Quake In 12 Years

California Is Shaken By More Than 80 Earthquakes As Chile Is Hit By The Largest Quake In 12 Years by Michael Snyder for End of the American Dream

Very early on Sunday morning, a massive 8.0 magnitude earthquake struck a sparsely populated area of Peru.  As you will see below, it was the largest earthquake to hit Peru in 12 years, and other areas of “the Ring of Fire” experienced unusual shaking afterwards.  Here in the United States, there were dozens of detectable earthquakes in the state of California on Sunday, and a lot of people are concerned about what all of these small earthquakes could mean.  More than 80 percent of the world’s earthquakes happen within the Ring of Fire, and many scientists believe that shaking along one section of the Ring of Fire can put stress on other portions.  Of course we have been told over and over again that California is way overdue for a “Big One”, and we know that it is coming someday.  Let us just hope that it can be delayed for as long as possible.

Any major earthquake along the Ring of Fire is reason for concern, and the one that hit Peru on Sunday was definitely very unusual.  According to CBS News, the magnitude 8.0 earthquake was deep enough that it did not cause much damage…

A powerful magnitude 8.0 earthquake struck a remote part of the Amazon jungle in Peru early Sunday, collapsing buildings and knocking out power to some areas but causing only one reported death. The quake struck at 2:41 a.m. and was centered in a vast nature preserve 57 miles east of the small town of Yurimaguas.

Helping limit damage was the earthquake’s depth, at 70 miles below the surface, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Earthquakes that are close to the surface generally cause more destruction.

But just because it didn’t cause that much damage does not mean that it wasn’t extremely powerful.

In fact, CNN is reporting that it was the strongest earthquake to hit Peru in 12 years and that it “was felt in several regions of the country”…

The earthquake was the strongest in Peru in 12 years, Vizcarra said.

Peru’s National Emergency Operations Center tweeted that the earthquake was felt in several regions of the country, and monitoring continues.

Is it just a coincidence that California was hit by dozens of earthquakes in the aftermath?

I have the USGS website up right now, and it is telling me that there have been more than 80 earthquakes in California within the last 24 hours.  By the time that you look at the same map, the numbers will inevitably have changed, but hopefully you will still be able to see that most of the recent shaking has been in southern California.

And whenever we see a lot of shaking in southern California, that should definitely raise a red flag.

As I have shared in previous articles, one scientific study came to the conclusion that one day an absolutely enormous earthquake “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”
