A 6.1 magnitude earthquake rocked wine country north of San Francisco early on Sunday, August 24, 2014, fulfilling a prediction I made tied to this date. Actually, Poseidon's tridents got my attention for there have been 3 quakes in 24 hrs: Chile, 6.4; California, 6.1; Peru, 6.9, all along the western coast of the Americas. (Please see more on the prediction, at "Trident Alert: Watch August 24," which was posted on August 20th.)
Let's look at the name game uniqueness of the California shaking.
The morning earthquake injured dozens of people, two of them seriously, damaging historic buildings, setting some homes on fire and causing power outages around the picturesque town of Napa, first thought to be centered below a town named American Canyon. One hospital reported 70 people showed up with earthquake-related injuries. Overall, 170 people were said to be injured, with no deaths reported (source).
The biggest quake in the region in 25 years jolted many residents out of bed when it hit at 3:20 a.m. local time (1020 GMT), in the Napa Valley of California.
Poseidon, whose weapon of choice, is the trident, is the "God of the Sea," but also the "Earth-Shaker," the one who causes earthquakes. He is also called the "tamer of horses."
Furthermore, under eight miles away, is the Silver Trident Vineyard. The Silver trident is at 110 Camino, Oruga Napa, CA 94558, and Posiedon's Vineyard or Posiedon Vineyard (it is given as both) is at 1100 Milton Rd, Napa, CA 94559.
For a deeper discussion of the meanings associated with Poseiden's/Neptune's Trident, please see what over 20 thinkers have to say at the Twilight Language's "Synchromystic Symposium: The Meaning of Tridents."

Bullseye. Amazing but not surprised.

I just heard about the Napa earthquake. A 6.0. Wow! I immediately thought of you.
Dang, man. The next time you call something, I'm staying home, in bed, the blankets up over my head! This, and you are now officially weird, and impressive. I figured it was going to be the volcano in Iceland.
The photographs from the Napa Valley region are just coming in, and show the extent of the damage.
Today, among the important immigrant communities who settled in La Calera before 1950, Palestinians stand out, which makes this town with the largest proportion of Palestine people in Latin America.
Tambo, Peru is a sparsely populated community in central Peru, about 467 kilometers (290 miles) SE of the capital of Lima. The word tambo (Quechua: tampu, "inn") refers to an Incan structure built for administrative and military purposes. Found along Incan roads, tambos typically carried supplies, served as lodging for itinerant state personnel, and were depositories of quipu-based accounting records. Pictured here is Qunchamarka tambo on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
Meanwhile, Suge Knight, a founder of Death Row Records, was shot on August 24. In this entertainment assassination attempt,
