    A Earthquake hit Mexico...rumored at 6.9 but nope it was a 7.2.

    What a way to liven up Easter here in Cali...it was felt all the way up in LA...building swaying and things a rockin'. But everyone is fine out here.

      There could be a larger one about to happen.
      The S end of the San Andreas fault just "quivered."
      If you are interested I wrote a "hub" about tektonic movement.

      Sadly I think that there are more earthquakes happening...wouldn't be surprised if Cali gets hit by a big earthquake soon.

    I was walking to my refridgerator, so I didn't feel the movement. I could see the lights in the dining room swaying back and forth, though.

    The '94 Northridge quake was quite an experience.... A similar type of fault line runs right under Sylmar....it is just a matter of when it decides to move again..

    I love plate tectonics......
