‘Mystery Shaking’ Prompts Concerns For San Diego Residents

Residents in San Diego, California claim they experienced an earthquake. But the shaking, which was reported around 5 P.M. on Tuesday, isn’t being classified as an earthquake by U.S. Geological Survey seismologists.

So then what was it? Well, that remains a mystery.

The USGS confirmed to San Diego’s 10News that an earthquake did not cause the shaking felt by residents in the area. 10News reached out to local military units but received no replies.

Was the shaking event a military exercise? Or something less obvious?

It was originally thought that a 3.8 earthquake occurred in the Pine Hills region, but further confirmations by 10News claim the shaking felt by the Council is unrelated to any such event. People in Guadalupe and Linda Vista reported shaking. Oddly, some residents located in the vicinity of reported shaking felt nothing.

While Southern California is notoriously located in the “ring of fire,” a ring of higher earthquake activity that lines the Pacific ocean, some of the most dangerous fault lines are rarely discussed. For example, the midwest United States sits on the deadly New Madrid Seismic Zone. The New Madrid fault line has the potential to unleash massive destruction all across the midwest. The Cascadia subduction zone, which flanks Portland, Oregon, is another threatening fault line that could slip any moment.

It’s important to make sure you’ve got your earthquake supplies and preppers list covered. Preparation is done over time, not after the catastrophic event occurs.
