EARTHQUAKE,YUMA

It was interesting riding out the earthquakes in Yuma the last 18 hours. WE felt at least six since yesterday, the first was the 7.2and the rig was really moving back and forth. About 4:15 this am we had another 5.1 and the bed really moved, Carol slept through it!!
I think it is safer then being in a stick house as he rig moves back and forth, as the stick house just shakes

Bob,
Glad the rig just got a little rock and rolla! Apparently being on wheels does help with the earthquake. Take care.

We had a small quake up here yesterday afternoon just north of Santa Rosa that measured 4.0 on the Richter Scale but we were out and about and didn't feel it. It sure seems that there have been a lot of them lately.

I've been looking at the USGS information on the earthquakes, and it is amazing how many quakes there have been on the Elsinore fault and adjacent faults since the 7.2: over 600, well over 600!

Here's the entry into the USGS Recent Quakes site. You can find info on the quakes, the fault lines, and a lot of other stuff.

Although it may be normal for a quake of this magnitude, I don't think I've ever seen so many aftershocks associated with a quake, and they are mostly along the fault line. Who needs a blender with all this shaking going on??

I was in Giants Stadium during the Loma Prieta(sp) earthquake and the stadium literally rippled completely around in a circle. It was like the stadium was doing the wave.
