Baja Earthquake Felt All The Way To Murrieta

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Early Wednesday a 5.8 Earthquake rattled Northern Mexico's state of Baja California. A hundred miles away San Diego experienced swaying buildings. The rolling motion was felt even further north into Riverside County by residents in Murrieta, California.

The quake was followed by a nearly as strong after-shock, and a number of much smaller aftershocks.

Considering the number of earthquakes on the opposide side of the tectonic plate in the South Pacific earlier this year, it seems reasonable that a flurry of quakes will begin to strike North America's west coast.
