This is the current satellite picture of the east coast of North America. The torndoes were coming from the high troposphere.

An outbreak of tornadoes (click here) tore through parts of the Deep South from January 21-22, 2017. At least 19 deaths are being blamed on severe weather across the Deep South and Gulf Coast.

From the morning of January 21 through January 22, 37 reports of tornadoes were received by NOAA's Storm Prediction Center in five southern states from Louisiana to South Carolina.

A deadly EF3 tornado touched down in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, early on January 21, which caused considerable damage and killed four people.

Middle Georgia saw numerous reports of tornadoes during the day on Saturday with damage reported....

Since the cross continent earthquake recently beginning in Oklahoma and ending in Iowa, the minor quakes are more important than ever to understand. Fractures can become important when they were forever stable before.

West Paris, Maine - A magnitude 2.1 earthquake (click here) was measured Saturday afternoon near West Paris, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The minor quake was recorded at 4:51 p.m. Saturday at a depth of 4 kilometers.

Earthquakes below a 3.0 magnitude are considered low intensity and are felt "by very few under especially favorable conditions," the USGS writes.

Several minor earthquakes have been reported across Maine since last winter.

Earthquakes below a 3.0 magnitude are considered low intensity and are felt "by very few under especially favorable conditions," the USGS writes.

The last significant earthquake in Maine happened on Oct. 16, 2012. It was felt more than 100 miles away in Boston.

The strongest earthquake recorded in Maine, a magnitude 5.1, happened in March 1904.

This is California and it has it's own west coast paradigm of safety. But, there is still drilling along those faults. Got to be crazy!

California needs to enter it's best scientists into a partnership at least annually with the USGS to discuss the future of California and drilling. The petroleum industry is dying. Why risk American lives for the sake of foreign exports? End it before more infrastructure fails.

Reassessments are really in order considering all the water that has moved through California with flooding and otherwise. The flooding might recede, but, the HYDROLOGIC PRESSURE created in California fissures and faults will not go away. Reassessment of all California's stability, including coastal landslides has to be conducted. Please.

San Bernadino - Plans are on track (click here) for City Hall to be vacated by April, as all employees move out of a building determined to be a substantial earthquake risk.
The roughly 200 employees now at City Hall will move to several locations, with officials yet to finalize details about which department will be where.
The City Council voted 7-0 in November to authorize City Manager Mark Scott to lease office space in Vanir Tower, 290 N. D St., and space at 215 N. D St., both on the same block as the City Hall building that’s stood at 300 N. D St. for 45 years.
Officials also plan to move a portion of the City Hall employees to 600 N. Arrowhead Ave., which was occupied by San Bernardino Employment and Training Agency until last March, when SBETA closed.
But the lease for that building isn’t yet finalized, city spokeswoman Monica Lagos said Friday....
