6.0 Magnitude Rumble in Central CA

This came as a surprise to me, but some of you may have felt it. Apparently there was a 6.0 magnitude earthquake along the San Andreas Fault yesterday morning, with the epicenter being 21 miles northeast of Paso Robles. The Chron says the quake was strong enough for folks in San Francisco to feel it. BART was delayed for trains to be checked, and the Scott Petersen trial in Redwood City was also recessed for awhile. So far no damage reports, however.
Here’s the USGS information page concerning the earthquake.

    I was walking to dinner on the Embarcadero Tuesday night and noticed that someone had altered some temporary historical signage embellishing a construction site to read “The 1906 Fart quake.” Good times.
