Early Morning California Earthquake


By Douglas V. Gibbs, AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

I normally sleep through earthquakes, but for some reason this one woke me up.  Here in Murrieta we really didn't even feel any shaking.  It was a small, sudden jolt, and then we could hear it for a while rumbling.  The house seemed to creak when the initial jolt hit.  After making sure the grandkids were fine, I decided I would look this one up, and I couldn't get through to the website.  It seems I wasn't the only one searching, and the many folks trying to learn about the quake had shut down the website.

I placed the earthquake at about 1:05 am.

At twenty after the hour I finally got through to one of the websites.  It was three earthquakes all within in a minute of each other at Borrego Springs, a desert community almost directly due east.  According to the indicators, the two larger of the three reached out to the Temecula area.

By 1:30 am, the third quake at 5.2 had been removed, leaving us with two; the 3.5 and the 5.1 changed to 5.2.

At 1:35 am I noticed a series of smaller aftershocks.  Anza is much closer to where I live.  As I sat here, however, I did not feel any of the aftershocks.
