Subject: RE: BS: you don't often get to see an earthquake
In the past day there have been 182 earthquakes just north of Donner's Pass/Truckee in the Sierra Nevadas. The largest was a 4.2 which was preceded by a 4.1 just seconds before. There have been a couple of aftershock which have reached 3 or better. This is unusually activity for this location. Ever since that killer quake in Indonesia that spawned the tsunami there seems to be an increase in magnitude and locations that ordinarily do not see a lot of seismic activity. I realize that that is a non-scientific statement but it never hurts to be prepared. That's always good advice for anyone who lives in the west coast states.
