Above is best visual and can use "zoom in" to see the center was well
removed from any high density residential area.
They say it was "only a 4.0" in SD, but I found that hard to accept & I have
Lived here all but a small portion of my life.
Aftershocks still continue.
If that was 4.0 here I NEVER want to be in anything higher. It was
Enough to shake you awake if it were at night. The only "good" aspect was
That it was a "rolling" as opposed to "jerking" type - the later being far
More startling (to me at least).
Wooh, just had a big aftershock right now.
Anyway, seems as though we are past it & hopefully NO ONE was
Best wishes, Michael
