Haven't found any videos of this earthquake that do a 7+ justice. I was going to say I'm not sure how that happens, but even with it lasting a good 45 seconds I didn't think to record any of the one last year. Just wasn't even remotely on my mind.

This is kind of crazy looking though.


Edit: Seems like there are only about 5 or 6 videos going around. This is the only one that has actual shaking, and only for the first 5-10 seconds.

Huh, somehow neither my wife nor I felt that 6.0 in Lone Pine. Weird because apparently everyone else in California did.

Although...we were both working out, so maybe that's why?

I didn't feel shit here in Sacramento, and neither did anyone else at work. Pretty far from us though.

I mean how damn dumb do you have to be?

Yeah, lets go to the active volcano in a t-shirt. That sounds like a good plan. The cruise line said it's perfectly safe, np, all good!

Guess they never heard about that husband and wife team who were both geologists studying volcanos. Pretty sure the two of them got cooked alive eventually. And those two took a lot of precautions. Happened within the past 10 years. They did a lot of work at St. Helens.

Well, add that to the list of jobs to take arsenic pills to just in case.

Swarm of lower earthquakes east of San Diego apparently. Broke in the news here. Apparently a lot of 2 to 4 on the richter. I think they said 50+ in a few hours.

Yeah, 7+ is no joke. I'd prefer to never experience that shit again. Feels like the earth is just pissed at you.

With how many old buildings are there, I'd imagine lots will be found dead unfortunately.
