    The satellite image isn’t the only evidence that the region’s topography was changed by the earthquake.
    A nearby highway is now shutdown after tremors cracked and moved sections of the roadway.

    On Saturday morning, blogger Khalil Underwood from California uploaded the footage onto Twitter of thousands of dying bees spread across his driveway following the massive quakes.
    I wasn’t exagerating or joking last night..... after the Earthquake thousands of bees were vibrating on the floor and dying.... this $#@! was so crazy to me. pic.twitter.com/qqCpBVhuyd

    A terrified Underwood told his followers: "This is crazy. I've never witnessed anything like this."
    "Look how many f***ing bees are on the f***ing floor from the earthquake."
    He first tweeted there was "like 70 [bees] on the floor just buzzing & dying," but later said, "I wasn't exaggerating or joking..... after the Earthquake thousands of bees were vibrating on the floor and dying.... this $#@! was so crazy to me."

    Over 500 responses had people from all walks of life try to explain what exactly happened to the bees. Some suggested the quake had distorted the magnetic fields the bees' brains were dependent on leaving them disoriented.
    I believed you when natural disasters happen animals and insects are sensitive to it. Even more when it comes to the vibrations of an earthquake.

    Found this link on bees & earthquakes. If they left a hive in a panic, they didn't feed before leaving, they would normally do if swarming. On going aftershocks & possible damage to hive have them disorientated & without food. I'm guessing though. https://t.co/GAfbg2h3XY

    ​"I just read that they abandon the hive during earthquakes, and return when it's over. The constant aftershocks could be keeping them from 'homing, which is probably not good", one Twitter user wrote, while another associated the bee deaths to fluctuations in the Earth's magnetic field during quakes.
    There is no definitive answer as to why the bees died after the quakes.
    However, a study from Taiwan during two significant earthquakes in 1999 and 2002 showed a catastrophic effect on insect communities, resulting in "large declines in total individual number but also total species number of insects."
    The US Geological Survey (USGS) had previously said it is "possible" a "seismic-escape response" may have triggered animals' natural instincts to escape predators.

    According to dutchsinse the energy is heading for the San Andreas fault now.

    Isn't he the guy who failed to predict the biggest quake in 20 years but still claims himself the best in the world at predicting quakes? (the California quake was hundreds of miles from the San Andreas fault line- the to are not connected).

    Since I had just written about this, I eagerly clicked on the story to see the amazing “evidence” that they were using to “debunk” this “myth”. Unsurprisingly, this was the extent of the “evidence” that they offered
    Here’s some comforting words for every California resident contemplating a permanent relocation.
    The USGS calls the the idea that the state will be swept out to sea “absolutely impossible.”
    What will continue to happen however, is the slow — about two-inches-per-year slow — northward movement of southwestern California toward Alaska, as it slides past central and eastern California.
    Wow, that is quite a powerful argument they laid out there.
    I assume that what is being referred to here is the idea that a portion of California could snap off the continent like a cookie and sink into the ocean, and of course that isn’t going to happen.
    However, much of southern California is barely above sea level, and scientists have discovered that past earthquakes have caused the ground in the region to sink by as much as three feet. If such an earthquake happened today, vast stretches of southern California could suddenly go underwater as the Pacific Ocean came pouring in.
    So instead of talking about southern California “going into the ocean”, perhaps it would be more accurate for us to talk about “the Pacific Ocean going into southern California”.
    Cal State Fullerton professor Matt Kirby was one of the lead researchers on the groundbreaking study that alerted all of us to this possibility, and he says that if a large enough earthquake happened today “you would see seawater rushing in”
    ‘Itīs something that would happen relatively instantaneously,’ Kirby said.
    Probably today if it happened, you would see seawater rushing in.’
    Southern California is essentially a time bomb, and it is absolutely riddled with fault lines. In fact, a Fox News article says that there are more than five hundred active fault lines in the region right now…
    Like a major river, the San Andreas has many tributaries – faults big and small that fan out and fracture the state from top to bottom. As a result, most Californians live within thirty miles of an active fault line, of which there are more than five hundred.
    So do you feel lucky?
    Maybe you do, and that is fine.
    But someday your luck will run out.
    We have entered the time of “the perfect storm”, and major seismic events are going to become increasingly common. As sure as you are reading this article, someday the kind of earthquake that I am talking about will come to California, and the death toll will be off the charts.
    Unfortunately, most Californians are not going to listen to the warnings. For example, one small business owner named Albert Adi told CNN that the risk of earthquakes is something he is willing to tolerate in order to live in a place “with beautiful weather and good job opportunities”
    Ultimately, he said, it’s just one of the tradeoffs of living in a place with beautiful weather and good job opportunities.
    “It’s the risk you have to accept by living here in Southern California,” he said.
    “Hopefully,” he added, “everything will work out.”
    Blind hope is not a strategy.
    Today, California is on the cutting edge of everything that is wrong with America. The state is at the forefront of our moral, social and political decay, and the filth being produced by our entertainment industry has infected the entire globe.
    Unless you have an overwhelming reason to stay, I don’t know why anyone would possibly want to live on the west coast at this point.

    The tides of the ocean go up and down by about 7 feet.

    If the earthquake happened at low tide, it would just turn into a medium tide.

    When the tide came up, some structures at sea level near the ocean might be affected.. but almost all houses are far more than 3' above sea level.

    The ocean level rise in the last 100 years was about 4-8 inches. The libtards are claiming that it is going to rise 6 feet in the next 35 years or something insane like that.. I'm guessing that in the next 100 years, the sea level will rise 4-12 inches at most.

    Typical California coastlines:

    Florida is at much greater risk if ocean level were to rise. Significant portions of that state are barely above sea level now.

    So wouldn't sea level rise be a good thing then?
