Earthquake data from Napa has clues to the a Big Onea

LA CAñADA FLINTRIDGE >> Scientists may be one step closer to understanding how the rumored “Big One” will hit California thanks to new data that NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory captured soon after last month's Napa temblor, the largest earthquake in the Bay Area since 1989. Data collected from NASA's Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar, or UAVSAR, three months before the Aug. 24 quake and then five days afterward informed experts of other faults near the main rupture that need to be studied, said Eric Fielding, a JPL geophysicist.

Standing by to treat the dozens of shaken “victims” Saturday were three doctors from West Valley Medical Center during the Encino Chamber of Commerce “Biggest Earthquake Drill in the San Fernando Valley.” One kid, in masterful role-playing that accompanied the triage, swooned while being treated after being hit in the head by a giant flying dictionary. “His brain will recover,” declared Dr. Sharon Pollock, an Encino pediatrician in real life, standing beneath a tent and tarp at the medical center on Balboa Boulevard.

After Napa earthquake, Silicon Valley looks to build high-tech alert system

Among the many things the Bay Area learned from the recent shaker near Napa is that UC Berkeley's earthquake warning system does indeed work for the handful of people who receive its messages, but the rest of us find out about a tremor only after it knocks us out of bed. Silicon Valley has made apps that tell us when our Uber ride is approaching, our air conditioning has broken or a thunderstorm is brewing.
