    EEK! I wonder if it will make it's way to Southern Cal


    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused

    Science geek to the rescue:



    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/...quakes_all.php

    You can monitor and research that site for real-time data on earthquakes all over the world. If you scroll down the list you will see that, indeed, Cali did have a series of small earthquakes Thursday evening. Somehwere in that data, is the listing of a small earthquake down in S. Cali.

    Well since I've been on the computer most of the day, and programming my new cell phone I've felt some today beause I was sitting down.

    One I wrote down the time of 3:31 p.m. and just a liitle while ago that really 'jolted' at 7:47 p.m.

    Guess I'll have to wait for the late news tonight to find out where they were, but they felt close.

    Oh I felt it. But I wasn't sure. I felt a rumble but then it was gone..so I thought it was my dog jumping on the bed or something. But that timing is right.

    But I didn't get anything in my notfication email.

    The one that jolted you looks like to have been a 3.0, in the greater LA area @ a depth of 4km. The earlier one looks to have been a 2.8 not far from the same area, with the depth at 3.8km. (per the gov't earthquake site that officially monitors for earthquakes)

    Hang in there, y'all... hopefully this is just a round of small temblors.

    I don't understand why they've made such a big deal out of these swarms. They happen all the time out here.
