2 Replies and 3477 Views Earthquake hide and seek  3477  2 Started by  Medulus I am enrolled with USGS to be notified in the event of earthquakes over 6.0 anywhere in the world.  A weird thing happened yesterday.  At 11:17 AM Pacific time there was a report of a 6.9 earthquake in the Gulf of California near La Paz, Mexico.  Later they downgraded it to a 6.7.  Then, at 3:10 PM the USGS sent a report that 'this event has been deleted after review by a seismologist.'  This morning, however, it is still showing on the USGS earthquake map.&nbs...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I was contacted this afternoon to be ready to deploy at a moment's notice to Hawaii. With no sizeable earthquakes in Hawaii in recent history, what are the chances that anyone there actually carries earthquake insurance  Could this be like the El Paso flood a couple of months ago I went to school in El Paso, Tx. It's in the desert, and NO, I did not carry flood insurance. El Paso was a non-event as far as a catastrophic insurance event goes. Anyone in the know about Hawaii
