Your reading audience is all over USA, Canada,
and some countries east of Atlantic Ocean.
Perhaps some more information is in order.
What state and nation, please?
Hope no one was injured, and damage was small.
Sorry 'bout that.
Since I am in So. Cal. I assume everyone here knows that. Afterall, I
was #8 in the post parade, no? :D
It was a 4.5 on the richter scale, and it was located about 4 miles
north-northwest of Banning, 6 miles northeast of Beaumont and 9 miles
east-southeast of Yucaipa, Southern California.
No one was injured.
You probably have them all the time.
I missed our last one in DE as I was riding in the car at the time and
vibrations did not come through.
Maybe 40 years ago I woke up to what sounded like a big truck driving
down the street to go back to sleep and read in next day's paper that we
had an earthquake.
(sigh) I suppose I will have to move to Calif sometime before dying
just so I can experience one! We had a mild tremor here a year or two
ago (epicenter on AZ/NM border) and it was just barely perceptible
("Hmmm... why is my monitor shaking?")
Would also like to try a hurricane -- but NOT a tornado! :<
Everyone in the mid west think earthquakes are the reason they will
never go to So. Cal. but I think the tornadoes the mid west have to
deal with is way more destructive than the earthquakes we get here in
Southern California. That's not to say earthquakes aren't destructive
or scarry, they most certainly are, but the damage from earthquakes
compared to tornado damage or cyclone [hurricane] damage is small. Yes,
there have been some real nasty shakers here in the past like the Loma
Prieta quake in 1989.
I was watching the world series game in Oakland California when it hit.
That shut down the game, and among other damage, destroyed the Nimitz
Freeway (Interstate 880), just south of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay
Then there was the big one that hit Los Angeles in 1994;
"On this day in 1994, an earthquake rocks Los Angeles, California,
killing 54 people and causing billions of dollars in damages. The
Northridge quake (named after the San Fernando Valley community near
the epicenter) was one of the most damaging in U.S. history."
We are waiting for "The Big One" to hit here still...
