    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

    Scientists are quite “concerned” about the huge earthquake swarm that has been shaking southern California in recent weeks, and right at this moment bubbling tar is literally coming up through the streets in one section of Los Angeles.  None of this means that a major seismic event is imminent, but it is certainly not a good sign either.

    We have been tracking quite a bit of unusual shaking along the Ring of Fire in recent months, and scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before “the Big One” hits southern California.  And if you follow my work on a regular basis, then you already know that I am extremely concerned about the potential for major seismic activity along the west coast.  So when I came across a San Diego Union-Tribune article entitled “Southern California earthquake swarm takes an unexpected turn, and that’s reason to worry”, it definitely got my attention.  According to that article, there have been “more than 700 earthquakes” in the Fontana seismic zone over the past few weeks…

    There have been more than 700 earthquakes recorded in the Fontana area since May 25, ranging from magnitude 0.7 to magnitude 3.2, recorded Wednesday at 5:20 p.m., according to Caltech staff seismologist Jen Andrews.

    That is certainly a lot of earthquakes, but is this sort of activity unusual?

    Well, according to one scientist, this is the “most prolific swarm” to hit that area “in the past three decades”

    The likelihood of a larger seismic event, given so many quakes over such an extended period, is higher than normal, the scientist said.

    “People ought to be concerned,” said Hauksson. “This is probably the most prolific swarm in that area of the Fontana seismic zone that we’ve seen in the past three decades.”

    Once again, I want to stress that all of this activity does not mean that a major earthquake is about to happen.

    But one day it is coming.  In fact, scientists have told us that one day the entire San Andreas fault could “could unzip all at once”.  And when that day finally arrives, there might not be any warning at all.

    If you live in California, you should be prepared for earthquakes to occur at all times, and that means taking some reasonable precautions

    In any home in seismically risky areas of California, experts recommend removing heavy objects around beds, strapping bookcases and dressers to walls, anchoring flat-screen televisions to walls, installing toddler safety latches on kitchen cabinets, and ensuring frames are attached to walls with quake-friendly hooks.

    Hopefully, there will not be a major quake any time soon, but over the past few days, another ominous sign has made the news.

    According to one local news report, “bubbling tar” is actually coming up through the streets near the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles…

    And on Saturday, more seepage. Enough to draw the interests of tourists and residents alike.

    CBS2’s Jake Reiner said tourists and residents alike have been coming to the area marveling at the bubbling tar.

    Once again, this might be nothing.

    But one local resident admitted that he had “never seen this before”, and apparently the smell of methane is very potent

    “You see a little bit of tar oozing up between the pavement,” Kogan says, “all over the neighborhood. That’s not unusual but this seems to be flow tar. I’ve never seen this before.”

    Not to mention the constant hissing sound coming from the ground — it’s methane.

    “I can smell it. I thought a car broke its oil pan out here,” says Patrick Myer.

    I don’t know about you, but if you can literally hear methane coming out of the ground and bubbling tar is starting to come up through the streets, perhaps that is a sign that it is time to consider moving somewhere else.

    But of course, the truth is that our entire planet is becoming increasingly unstable.  On Monday, a magnitude 4.0 earthquake struck near Cleveland.  The following comes from CNN

    A preliminary magnitude-4.0 earthquake was reported Monday about 20 miles northeast of Cleveland, in or around Lake Erie, the US Geological Survey said.

    The earthquake, measuring 3.1 miles in depth, was reported just before 11 a.m. local time north-northwest of the city of Eastlake.

    “Did you feel that rumble this morning Cleveland? Well if you missed it, we caught this morning’s earthquake on multiple #OHGO cameras. Check it out! #Clevelandreallyrocks,” the Ohio Department of Transportation tweeted, along with a collection of traffic videos showing the moment the quake hit.

    And of course Cleveland is not very far from the New Madrid fault zone that I have been writing articles about again and again.

    On the other side of the world, a huge volcano in Indonesia also erupted on Monday

    A huge column of ash was blasted almost five miles into the sky above the Indonesian island of Sumatra after an active volcano erupted.

    Mount Sinabung blew for nine minutes on Sunday, causing panic among the island’s residents.

    Indonesian officials warned that further volcanic activity was possible, although the volanco’s alert level remained unchanged.

    Major seismic events are happening so frequently now that it is really hard to keep up with them all.

    But it is very important not to become numb to what is happening.  Something strange really is happening to our planet, and many believe that it is going to get a lot worse.

    As for California, scientists keep telling us that “the Big One” is way overdue, and when it finally arrives it could be a history-altering event.

    According to one team of scientists, an extremely large earthquake could potentially “plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”.  Such an event would be far worse than anything that any Hollywood earthquake movie ever envisioned, and let us pray that nothing like that happens any time soon.

      1. “Hot road tar coming up through the streets.” Smells better than turds.

      2. In the words of Jerry Lee Lewis; “There’s a whole lot of shaking going on!”. I suspect Los Angeles is about to experience a major earthquake.

        • “Shake Rattle And Roll”.

      3. Needled, syringes, turds..

        what else would you want in a beautiful liberal city.

      5. More space for the homeless to expand when it shakes loose.


      6. Let all of the west coast plunge into the ocean thus saving the legal citizen white male American working taxpayer the cost of rebuilding it all. Money from the government is my money.

        I’m sick of cities pissing my money away on those that don’t deserve a cent, sick of paying for fat people with my money, sick of bailing everyone and everything out with my money.

        • Cruel? No, if one is dumb enough to live in a seismic zone then they deserve everything that happens to them, also, they and they alone must be responsible for the total costs of rebuilding in a seismic area.

          Trillion dollar shit event will occur and the entire legal citizen white male American working taxpayers will have to pay for it.

          • Bert,
            I don’t normally agree with you, but this one time I do. If you choose to live in a dangerous area, you are responsible for that choice, not the taxpayer.
            I live in a place that is subject to about every natural disaster there is, name one, and it probably has happened here. I accept that responsibility, and I don’t expect the Federal government to provide assistance.

          • I assume you feel the same way of people who are dumb enough to live in Tornado Alley, in the path of hurricanes, or or in a region where extreme cold or extreme heat can affect them, which encompasses a good 90% of the land mass. Hope you aren’t dumb enough to live in one of those areas.

      7. “None of this means that a major seismic event is imminent…”
        “Once again, I want to stress that all of this activity does not mean that a major earthquake is about to happen.”

        I am located between Salton (fumaroles) and Santa Barbara (oil seep).

        My parents are headed directly for the center of that Fontana cluster, today.

        The bullseye feature puts me directly over a crisp edge of activity in the area of San Jacinto.:
        earth.nullschool.net -> earth -> chem -> CO

        Carbon monoxide builds, slowly. Carbon dioxide and sulfur gases are released in a flash.

        It’s considered politically incorrect, to say things, you can see with your own eyes, hear, smell, or touch, directly.

        But, if you enter coordinates into a satellite map, when very specific ones are given for a temblor, the faultline will oftentimes look like a dry stream bed, assuming that hasn’t been built-over.

        You might be able to walk right up to it.

        Smells do come out, for about a week, before and after earthquakes. Something hot, acrid. I can’t put my finger on it. Possibly lime, because alkali is found in the water.

        Mud, tar, ammonia, chlorine, sulphur, and rare earth elements.

        They micromanage our vehicle exhausts, and concrete is toxic waste.

      8. The reference in the article to large areas of California falling into the sea is irresponsible. The link it refers to only refers to a small 2 sq.mi. section of the Southern California coastline where they discovered that a marshy area sunk 3 feet in a distant earthquake. I used to live in that area, and most of the region is marshland at sea level to a few feet above sea level. Most of that area is protected from development, so not a major catastrophe if it actually sunk.

      9. CO2 has been showing up strong, for the last month or two, but extremely strong readings, at the time of this post, near Lassen, off Oregon, and Channel Islands region. Possibly, some of the world’s strongest, near CA.

        But, don’t use an air conditioner or small fan. This is all your fault…

        This particular place, which I have linked, above, will allow you to watch in real time, play it forward and backward.

        In my mental model, the lighter gases tend toward effervescence, ultimately leading to an eruption of the more viscous materials.

        Right afterwards, this will show up as larger particulates, besides the finer gas.

        Pressure can be released, some place else, entirely. But, there is pressure. You can see it, for yourself. The most obvious, weak points are highlighted in nice colors.

        DIY, show me the work, and you educate me, if you think I am full of it. Maybe, you will be the first to learn it.

        Also, I should say anomalous heat, drought, and fires coincide with the fault system, when we are playing the blame game.
