yesterday's 6.4 is now considered a pre-quake. and today's is the "earthquake".
stay tuned for lots of aftershocks....
And I regard earthquakes as god's way of reminding me.
rode out all the big quakes. This is the first time that I recall an earthquake swarm where quakes the actually strong enough to be felt and are coming up every few minutes.
The earthquake app I have shows 15 events in the past hour since the 7.1 quake. No rest for me tonight!
There are a lot of freebie seismic apps, but this one works for me.
...Whittier Narrows, Rancho Cucamonga, Northridge, etc.
They hit fast and hard...and tapered off pretty quickly. This one, is a bit different.
Roughly 6 months after Loma Prieta in 1989 (and on the anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake) we had a 4ish quake at 6:30 AM. Now I don't get out of bed for anything less than a 5, and it wasn't time to get up yet, so I just went back to sleep. 15 minutes later, there was another one about the same size. I was still not ready to get up. Then 15 minutes later there was yet another one - this time I got the message.
Expect to be jumpy for a few weeks, if not longer.
the aftershocks because each time I wonder if it's just an aftershock or another earthquake that I should get up move for.
