Hollywood's Famous Sunset Strip Gets a Tiny Earthquake!!! Just a Few Blocks West of West Hollywood!!! AND Watch For Shakers Now Around West Coast of Washington/Oregon, Along With Mt. Hood, And Mt. St. Helens!!! UPDATE: 6.5 China With Death, Injuries, And Damage!!!

UPDATE: This rang my phone right away this morning, a 6.5 China Earthquake and upon checking it is now looking like a big one struck there!!! I'll have all that in next EQ Blog!!! Now Tuesday:

THIS Earthquake just hit the "Sunset Strip" on Monday!!! Not all that big, but can serve as a reminder that is very near the epicenter of the Northridge Quake just the other side of the mountain there in Hollywood!!! So, I took a trip all around my old neighborhood on a "Street Views" map, and more about that after a look at the USGS Report there:

1.2 - 1km WNW of West Hollywood, CA
2017-08-07 08:43:02 UTC 34.096°N 118.375°W 11.3 km depth

Nearby Places:
0.6 Miles WNW of West Hollywood, CA
1.9 Miles Northeast of Beverly Hills, CA
2.5 Miles West of Hollywood, CA
3.1 Miles SSW of Universal City, CA
3.7 Miles SSE of Studio City, CA

Got some Great Pics of a lot of the Groovy Places along the Sunset Strip there including TWO Branches of my own personal "Bank of America" Buildings, saw Tower Records where I go to buy tickets back in the day although had heard Tower Records on Sunset was closed and heard House of Blues on Sunset was closed, too. . . but it's still very much there. HERE'S Hollywood & Highland Center with the Hollywood Sign on the hill in the distance
NOT Sure where I got that pic from, sorry, and Thank-You, Too!!! Got a great pic of the old "Viper Room" although didn't see the old "Key Club" not sure if it's still there or not! And of course Pink Dot, Guitar Center, my agents old building who got me my first part shooting up in Malibu Canyon on like my second day in Hollywood!!! Movie Theater on Sunset and Fairfax, Directors Guild, Burger King, Ralphs where we park on the roof there, and upon cruising up one block to Hollywood Boulevard saw (Manns) Chinese Theater, Dolby Theater, and The El Capitan Theater, along with the Hollywood & Highland Center and of course. . . The Hollywood Sign!!! End of tour, just hope none of those places become the epicenter anytime soon!!! In fact one of the stores on my tour was actually destroyed in the Northridge Earthquake of 1994!!!

HERE'S that Santa Barbara Shaker I was talking about as yesterdays EQ Blog went to press and looks like it's been downgraded now from about a 2 or 2.1 that it was on Sunday when it stuck:

1.9 - 10km S of Santa Barbara, CA
2017-08-06 17:59:58 UTC 34.331°N 119.686°W 6.4 km depth

Nearby Places:
6.2 Miles South of Santa Barbara, CA
8.1 Miles SSW of Montecito, CA
10.6 Miles WSW of Carpinteria, CA
11.2 mi) Southeast of Goleta, CA

Now, I know I had promised the Santa Barbara Earthquake, but upon just now checking at press time, I notice there had also been a Santa Paula 2.1 Earthquake felt in Lake Elsinore for whatever reason and I just want to be sure which one I was supposed to be rerunning, so now were up to date and one more from that region follows, if you want to call "Mt. Baldy" and Fontana the same region?

This one looks like it was felt in Rancho Cucamonga!!!

2.5 - 7km S of Lytle Creek, CA
2017-08-07 08:24:27 UTC 34.195°N 117.509°W 3.8 km depth

Big news today is that landfall early Monday of Typhoon Noru at Japan!!! Crossed onto land in the very early hours our time and struck the "Japanese Alps" about mid-day our time with windspeeds over a hundred, I'll have more about Noru in upcoming editions. For now be aware a 2.1 already struck to the south of the Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens Region where I'm already now starting to watch!!! Should be bigger than the last 5.1 there, but how big. . . you'll have to wait till I get all my research on this one!!! Until then watch our West Coast along Washington, and Oregon!!! Full Moon Window runs just beyond Mid-Day on Tuesday and if needed I'll have an update on the shaking!!! EQ Guy
