Just days after a 7.5 Magnitude Earthquake hit Guatemala, they were again hit by a 6.5 Sunday afternoon. The two combined have misplaced thousands, who are now without a home to return to when the dust settles.
Folks all over the country ran out of their businesses and homes in a frenzy. For the many cities along Guatemala's coast near the border of Mexico on Sunday, the people were in a state of terror. Luckily there weren't any reports of deaths or any major damage. The locals panicked, due to four aftershocks with magnitudes ranging from 4.5 to 5.0.
How often does this occur? I am going to head to Denver, Colorado, and watch Los Angeles get wiped of the map like dust being brushed off the shoulder. I think the recent Ecological Disasters are warning signs, of what is about to occur, on or around Dec. 21st 2012. Maybe I am over analyzing the situation. I don't take earthquakes lightly when they are along the Pacific plate.
CA is way overdue for the BIG ONE , and soon enough we will know our fate!
