More than 6000 earthquakes hit Mexicali in April

Cinco de Mayo

Not the real thing - just a Cinco de Mayo celebration in Mexico

More than 6000 earthquakes hit Mexicali in April.

This includes 702 earthquakes of three to four degrees on the Richter scale, and 72 of between four and five, and 9 large earthquakes between five and six on the Richter scale.

This is more than a month after the 7.2 earthquake killed at least four people, injured 223, and damaged at least 2,500 local homes.

Four new earthquakes, one of which reached 4.6 degrees on the Richter scale, centered south of Mexicali hit us early this morning..

People living to the south of Mexicali on the road to San Felipe are afraid that their damaged houses could collapse completely. Many of them are sleeping in their cars and tents. More than 25,000 people are now living in shelters.  You won’t read that in the U.S. news.

Jim wanted to drive down to the earthquake area to take a look, but Matthew and I said “No!”  Jim should have better sense with all his talk about the birth of a “Baby Moon,” and our being blasted out into space.

Meanwhile it is the Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”). Most Americans think this is Mexico’s Independence Day, but it isn’t. It celebrates the underdog Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

The Cinco de Mayo is no big deal in Mexico, but, somehow, it is in the U.S.

So what did we do for the Cinco de Mayo?

Matthew, Jim, and I sat around the house just waiting for the next earthquake.
