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.
