    Yipes: 4.1 Seismic Event 13 miles from me

    Rattled me pretty noticably-the glass shower door shook twice (hence the run to my computer at an ungodly time reaction.

    Like most people, I have no earthquake insurance

    Oh well. Only a harmless 4.1 according to USGS. Are there any openings in Buffalo, New York?

    4.1? Man, thatís nothing. I can flush the toilet and get a bigger Richter scale rating. Wait until the 8.0 hits the Hayward fault--it'll happen soon. Youíll be in for the ride of your life.

    It's okay... it wasn't even in the 5s yet. It doesn't even count in Cali until it hits the 5s Wasn't there one near you in Winters many decades ago that made the Berryessa Dam crack? Hehehehe... so much more to look forward to!

    Since they've been injecting millions of gallons of tertiary treated sewage into the geysers, the number of 3's have increased substantially. There's several each month. That's the cluster of boxes near Clear Lake at the top of MZ's map. Fortunately, we don't feel them until they hit 4. Only one of those in the last few years.
