Yeah, like, um, like I live in, like, um, California? And um, like, sometimes the ground quakes, you know? (high pitched laugh)...

Some day, a California earth quake may sink all us west coast weirdos into the ocean, (or maybe turn my desert-like East county frontyard into beachfront property), but for now, I live near San Diego, "America's Finest City".

This page is all about California earth quakes. Virtually anything you want to know about them, you can find out here, or follow one of my high quality links to more earth quake information.

By the way, earth quake should be one word, but let's just imagine there's an earthquake-caused chasm between the two words, and you know it's a compound word- so originally it came from the two words, earth, and quake, for obvious reasons.

There are loads of small California earth quakes every day. Check out this map if you're looking for a recent California earth quake. If you actually felt a California earth quake, then it was of significant size, and you'll see it listed here: Big California earth quakes.

History: For information on big California earth quakes of the past, here are some more web sites- there was the big San Francisco California Earth Quake of 1906. And here's something about the 1994 Los Angeles California Earth quake

If you're new to Southern California, and want some basic info about how to live in Earthquake country, check out the Southern California Earth Quake Country web site. They offer a 32 page book on the basics.

Homeowners in California also need to realize that most California insurance policies don't cover earth quake damage. For more, check out AAA's California earth quake insurance information.

Some scientists devote their entire lives to trying to understand how to predict earth quakes - some are obsessed with predicting the next "Big One" or next huge, tragic California earth quake.
