The first was short and very strong, for a split second. I would have bet the rent it was a large explosion. Never felt one like that.

You might be sitting right over the epicenter. They feel like that when you're directly (or very close to) them.

I'll take my cold and snow and "flyover country" moniker over your earthquakeville. Call me chicken, but not stupid (grin). Hope you tough 'ol birds on the left coast stay safe.

Oh, I understand, but we are't in that area. It's strange how they can skip around as sometimes the shock waves propagate in different direction. This one had our name on it.

There have been quakes continuously in central Cal and along the main fault east of LA and San Diego since the 6.5 earlier this week. Over 1000 and no sign of slowing. Looks like it is finally breaking off and falling into the ocean.

Between snow and cold, I'll settle for shakers now and then....No problemo...

It got down to 67 today, so I know what cold is too.

Hehehe...

:O

Interesting graphic from the USGS. Blue areas supposedly indicate where the earthquake was felt. Interesting that it skips an area then shows up near Northridge.

USGS now confirming three separate earthquakes.....With the largest at 3.5.

They don't think the current events are related to the other recent events....

How could they possibly know that so quickly?

I think there are some buried faults under Fresno, but the quakes we feel are usually those along the San Andreas fault line west of us and or those in the deserts to the south and also east in the Sierras.

Another 3.0 in Utah just now. Sure is active this week in the Southwest. It started on the new moon, but it hasn't stopped. Every 1/4 hour another spot appears on the USGS chart.

Hi Joe - I live in Diamond Bar. I didn't feel a thing. I was working outside and walking around, so I'm not suprised...

The miracle of modern vector math as applied to supercomputers.

Gee, I just went through a 6.5 here in central California that made a mess of my house - and your talking about a "big shake" that was a 3.1...

We don't even notice the low 3's after shocks anymore there have been so many...

;-)
