A bunch of earthquakes in the last 24 hours

USGS Shake-map of our latest earthquake

USGS Shake-map of our latest earthquake

I felt the first quake while I was sitting at my computer (where else?). Nothing too big—the monitor wobbled a bit and the floor shook.

Yes, we do have earthquakes in Mexicali. We first noticed starting with the big 7.2 earthquake on Sunday, April 4, 2010. The ones in the last 24 hours were nothing like that.

The quakes in the last 24 hours took place about 30 miles south of Mexicali in the same area as the big 7.2.

The way Mexicali is built, there was very little damage from the 7.2 earthquake. So, to anticipate any questions, Mexicali is very save earthquake-wise (and in every other way).

Below is the official record from the USGS website of the latest earthquakes from the computers at Caltech.

Jim said, “Wow! Those there Caltech guys is really smart—don’t know how they come up with this stuff.”

Matthew added, “Yeah, and we get in on the Internet just seconds after the earthquake occurs.”

“Real smart and really quick,” added Jim.

I stepped in, “It’s all done by their computers. Sure they were smart settin’ it all up, but there are no Caltech guys sittin’ around doing this stuff by hand.”

“I do declare” said Jim, as Matthew nodded in agreement.
