At 4:30 this morning another shaker happened that woke me up. This time, 3.7. That means it’s enough you hear it rumble and the house shakes a bit, but nothing falls. It’s about the same as a herd of 7 year old boys running through the house.

So it woke me up. Then I was too paranoid to go back to sleep so I started investigating things.

With my desktop littered with Google Earth kml files, I can show you the above map of all of the earthquakes that have happened about 13 miles from my house in the last 12 days. There is one missing, that 4.2 that rocked us at the beginning of the month. For reference, the yellow pushpin is my house (in southwest Riverside County, CA) and the red stars are the earthquake epicenters (roughly halfway between Lake Elsinore and Corona, California).

I thought it was interesting how there is so much activity in that one spot. I’m sure the super smart cal tech guys have noticed that as well and are paying extra super close attention to it.

  1. OH NOES! Not the end of times! I don’t think I could handle that.

    Better call my broker and sell all of my CA real estate holdings. hehe
