Some moderate shaking

earthquake1221.jpgThis morning at 9:21 there was another moderate quake, a 3.5 on the Hayward fault. That makes three 3.5+ earthquakes in the last four days and the second one in 12 hours.

For those of you outside the Bay Area, such earthquakes amount to no more than a brief rumble and jolt, such as you might feel if a very large truck hit a pothole outside your house, only the shaking lasts for ten or fifteen seconds instead of two seconds — that’s the main way I can tell the difference, as I live near busy Cesar Chavez St. and big trucks hit a certain spot every hour or so, causing palpable vibrations.
