Sidewalks outside of Palm Springs, CA are starting to lift up off the ground as the same force which caused the earthquakes in Ecuador and Japan is now hitting California; pressure from the Pacific Tectonic plate has now begun crushing into the US west coast.
These photos, posted by the homeowner who lives about ten minutes outside Palm Springs, CA, show what’s taking place (Click twice to enlarge images):
Before you say it, NO, there are no tree roots underneath. This buckling took place since yesterday, April 20.
The resident also says that when his son stood on the sidewalk to see if it would move back down, it would not.
See? Nothing underneath. This sidewalk is being pushed up from the ends; the ground at one end is moving toward the other end, buckling the sidewalk.
EARTHQUAKE FEARS GROWING
Would you be able to sustain your loved ones when all hell brakes loose?In this video, I will unearth a long-forgotten secret that helped our ancestors survive famines, wars, economic crises, diseases, droughts, and anything else life threw at them… a secret that will help you do the same for your loved ones when America crumbles into the ground.I’m also going to share with you three old lessons that will ensure your children will be well fed when others are rummaging through garbage bins.Watch the video below to learn all about the 3 skills that will help you thrive in any crises situation:
The same tectonic plate which caused the tremendous earthquakes in Japan and later, in Ecuador last week, is now pushing against the west coast of the US. It is crushing-into the ground in California. As this movement continues, something, somewhere, has to “give.” That generally means an earthquake.
Of course, California has little earthquakes all the time. It’s quite typical for that area.
What worries many is that of all the regions affected around the world by the Pacific tectonic plate, the west coast of North America is the ONLY region where there has not (yet) been a major earthquake in the last ten days.
Worsening those fears is the history of the 1906 great San Francisco earthquake. What many people do not know is that the San Francisco earthquake was part of a pattern of quakes which took place that year; first in Ecuador, then in Japan, and finally, the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906.
Folks are starting to wonder if history is repeating itself?
US GEOLOGICAL SURVEY INSTRUMENTS LIGHTING UP!
The US Geological Survey has a vast array of monitoring equipment deployed throughout the US west coast, and in California particularly. One of the devices they utilize is called a “Crustal Deformation Sensor.” It detects when the earth’s crust is being deformed (crushed/moved). They are euphemistically referred-to as “creep meters” because they detect if the ground has started to creep in one direction or another.
As of 11:47 AM eastern US time, nineteen out of the twenty-three creep-meters around San Francisco have lit-up as “active” meaning the earth’s crust is — right now — being deformed around San Francisco. You can see the green icons on the map below. Green means “active” Red means “inactive.”
It would seem prudent for persons residing in California to make certain they have emergency food, water, flashlights, batteries, radios and first-aid kits, just in case ” a big one ” strikes.

4/22 is going to be a major day…..yup….tomorrow.
Well, now, maybe, just maybe the street could have buckled a little or the wall of the house just to give us a little more faith that this is tectonic. If it is, it’s a little pinprick that chose to buckle the concrete at a joint, and didn’t bother with the curb, the street which has cracks through it, etc. I’m one who has been in “the Big One in L.A. in January of 1971. So there needs to be a little bit more damage here.
Normal expansion get it all the time in Tucson. Half mile of flat and a lift up of about a foot iat one joint. Could be the dryness of the soil and an increase in temperature. Thermal expansion works wonders.
I think you got it right.
Funny, was just talking with my s.o. about being in Long Beach when the Sylmar EQ hit. Folks in the Valley had real problems for a couple of weeks with no power, water, etc. Lots of front lawn campouts and BBQs ensued. But this little sidewalk buckling posted here is more like what we’d see around southern Calif. when contractors would skimp on expansion joint materials or not allow for thermal expansion on long sidewalks. When freeway overpasses drop onto cars below, now THAT is faultline ‘creep’ !
That would have been February.
It’s only one location. Not saying it couldn’t be happening. All quiet in San Francisco today.
No EQ in SF and none for a long time, decades if not a full century out. Little EQs now and then not a big deal here and when big ones hit, only a few neighborhoods have any real damage. Most have none. Living in EQ country is like living in tornado country. Some neighborhoods get hit hard, others get no damage.
