Subject: RE: BS: you don't often get to see an earthquake
A 5.2 WILL get your attention! Even here in California. I'm in a similar situation to Skarpi's as we have a "dormant" volcano in our backyard (10 miles away) and a geothermal industry just south of the volcano on the border between Sonoma and Lake County. Anywhere from 1/4 to 1/3 of all California's earthquakes happen here, around 150 a week. Fortunately they are mostly micro quakes with a few 3's and 4's thrown in for fun. The one's around 5 are rare even here. I hope there wasn't too much damage and I am thankful that no one (as far as I know) was hurt.
