Quakers

January 30, 2016

EarthquakeDespite being in an earthquake-shaker zone, no news yet about a couple of heavy-duty quakes in the area yesterday afternoon within minutes of each other — I didn’t feel a thing.

First, a 5.0 earthquake at 4:28, about 165 miles west of Mckinleyville, and pretty-shallow, too, at 6.2 miles; followed two minutes later by a 4.9 shaker, about 10 miles further west, and at the same depth.

No reports yet of any anything…

Only media coverage was a brief at SFGate this morning.
According to the UC Berkeley Seismological Lab site, there were a couple 3.0 aftershocks.
