33 | San Andreas


The San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that extends roughly 810 miles (1,300 km) through California in the United States. It forms the tectonic boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate.  It also happens to have 33-numerology.
  • San Andreas = 1+1+5+1+5+4+9+5+1+1 = 33
In 1953, geologist Thomas Dibblee astounded the scientific establishment with his conclusion that hundreds of miles of lateral movement could occur along the San Andreas Fault.
  • Thomas = 2+8+6+4+1+1 = 22
  • Dibblee = 4+9+2+2+3+5+5 = 30
  • Thomas Diblee = 22+30 = 52
  • Notice the 223, or 322 reversed

Notable earthquakes[edit]

The San Andreas Fault has had some notable earthquakes in historic times:
  • 1857 Fort Tejon earthquake: About 217 miles (349 km) were ruptured in central and southern California. Though it is known as the Fort Tejon earthquake, the epicenter is thought to have been located far to the north, just south of Parkfield. Two deaths were reported. The magnitude was about 7.9.
  • 1906 San Francisco earthquake: About 267 miles (430 km) were ruptured in Northern California. The epicenter was near San Francisco. At least 3000 people died in the earthquake and subsequent fires. The magnitude was estimated to be 7.8.
  • 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake: About 25 miles (40 km) were ruptured (although the rupture did not reach the surface) near Santa Cruz, California, causing 63 deaths and moderate damage in certain vulnerable locations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Moment magnitude was about 6.9. The earthquake also postponed game 3 of the 1989 World Series at Candlestick Park. This quake occurred on October 17, 1989, at approximately 5:04 P.M. PDT.
  • 2004 Parkfield earthquake: On September 28, 2004, at 10:15 A.M. PDT, a magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck the Parkfield area. It was felt across the state, including the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • Loma = 3+6+4+1 = 14
  • Prieta = 7+9+9+5+2+1 = 33
  • Loma Prieta = 14+33 = 47
