The first, known as the 1992 Landers earthquake, struck at 4:57 a.m. PDT and was felt by most of Southern California. The 7.3 magnitude earthquake shook the area for two to three minutes.

Although the earthquake was extremely powerful, most of the severe impacts occurred in the sparsely-inhabited Mojave Desert. Because of this, the casualties and damage weren’t as extensive as the 1994 Northridge earthquake that hit just over 19 months later.

Now look at the cracks left in the Mojave Desert…

The surface fracture was 70 km long. The earthquake caused $92 million worth of damage. During the event, two people died from heart attacks. A three-year-old boy also died when a chimney collapsed into the room where he was sleeping. An additional 400 people were injured.

Not long after, at 08:05 PDT, another earthquake hit the state. The 1992 Big Bear Earthquake also shook Southern California.

The 6.5 magnitude quake hit Big Bear Lake just east of Los Angeles. The earthquakes occurred 35 km from each other.

At first, people thought that the Big Bear earthquake was an aftershock of the Landers quake, but the United States Geological Survey concluded it was a separate event (but related).

The two earthquakes were part of a regional stress adjustment.

The Big Bear quake destroyed around 2,600 chimneys and knocked approximately 20 homes off their foundations. The quake caused landslides in the San Bernardino Mountains, which blocked several roads. The event caused 63 injuries and around $60 million in damages. has been banned from ad networks and is now entirely reader-supported CLICK HERE TO SUPPORT MY WORK… I will send you a small gemstone if you give more than 25$… Thanks in advance!

  1. Kali is shaking like Jelley indeed and sooner than later must shaken with 7.5 and then on 2024 super eclipse will be shaken to 8 plus range indeed. Kali has invasions by mexican gangs that want to kill all Kali and own thier homes. Kali will be hell on earth regardless of Putin put a Satan 2 missile on San Andre Fault lines and sink in Kali artificially. Time is short people are moving from Kali so much that now they give free medical to all aliens.?Dare not to prepare!

  2. The San Andreas is a pipsqueak quake Zone.
    When the Madrid lets loose, everybody from the Eastern Rockies to Newfoundland, from Cuba to Hudson Bay will feel that quake.
    AND whole towns/cities will disappear just like in 1811-1812.
    AND every bridge for 250 miles OUT from the center will go down or be so badly damaged that they will be unusable.
    ADD gas. electric and water lines/pipes will be broken out to 500 miles.
    1-2 Million will die in the first hour and than….and than the ‘fun’ starts.
    Looting, fires, people fighting for scraps and worst of all…another Country could walk right in and take us over.
    Be ready, stock up and Arm up.
