Not far from where I am. Both were almost in the same location and almost the same magnitude though the second seemed to have been deeper. They only lasted for a few second. It is the SF Bay Area ones. The epicenter was less than a mile from where I was at the time.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

And in the San Antonio area, we too had an earthquake, about 4.5 or so but quite deep apparently. Few people noticed it. I wasn't one of them.

Apparently today is once again the end of the world so maybe you're getting the early warnings.

If anyone sees annoying people sailing up and away, be sure to post pictures.

Family Radio stirred up a "global frenzy" when it predicted the May 21 rapture? Really???

Sorry about the delay in response. Free public WiFi just started running well up here.

Well, yeah, it went through the mainstream media worldwide and had lots of folks quite amused for a while.

Small, but enough to give a good shake when you are about a mile away from the epicenter.

Well, it would certainly be in line with the Torah Code...

...oh, wait. Never mind.

It was somewhere under a 5, with preliminary estimates being between 4.6 and 4.8. The USGS pegged it at 4.8. I didn't even notice it...

We here on the East coast send our hearts and prayers as we still work to recover from the VA Earthquake.

What, me worry?

What was ironic was that is was Shake Day or something like that. Schools and businesses were doing earthquake drills.
