Reblogged this on The Louisiana Sinkhole Bugle and commented:

Watch out! Craton Plate doin’ a jig!
This may be a precursor to bigger seismic activity (opinion).

These quakes seem to be an odd sort of quake for the California coast. Should be a lot more shaking feeling, especially for their size, but residents are describing a long, rolling motion. Haven’t heard any authorities address that. I lived there. They are odd sort of quakes for Calif.

There are lots of quakes up at Alaska and many in South America … maybe its sort of a chain gang quake…

Interesting article/theory. Not something I would have considered but I’m not trained to either 🙂 I suppose the additional weight of a fuller lake would stress the faults. I still find it odd that residents are describing “rolling” motion rather than shaking. Not typical for the larger Calif quakes…maybe the smaller ones. Will be interesting to watch and see what happens there.
