We had an earthquake today. The skyscrapers were swaying around, like they were designed to do. Car was still there. Parking garage didn't collapse and best of all, the house was still there when I got home. Really, it was only a 5.4 but, given that it was way out near Chino (pretty far from San Diego), we still received a decent shaking plus a few aftershocks. According to the Southern Californa Earthquake Data Center: A moderate earthquake occurred at 11:42:15 AM (PDT) on Tuesday, July 29, 2008. The magnitude 5.4 event occurred 7 km (4 miles) SE of Diamond Bar, CA. The hypocentral depth is 14 km ( 8 miles). Wow! 8 miles underground. The aftershocks are still going on. Could it be leading up to something exciting? Probably not but we'll know tomorrow eh?
