Eureka earthquake: twin quakes shake up northern California

July 22, 2012SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — No damage or injuries have been reported after two earthquakes rattled the Northern California coast Friday night. The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 5.1 quake hit about 78 miles southwest of Eureka at 6:52 p.m. Friday. Then just after 11 p.m. a magnitude 5.2 earthquake was recorded about 62 miles southwest of Eureka. A dispatcher at the Eureka Police Department says the quakes were felt in the community, but police had no reports of damage or injuries. USGS seismologist John Bellini says the quakes took place in an area where there’s a lot of seismic activity. -HP

    Things are heating up. People ate still not getting what kind of trouble all of us are in. By the time they get it it will be too late. I have been encouraging people to read Alvin’s books. I know his books help me get through the day. Excellent work Alvin.

    Of all the possible earthquakes, NW USA and New Madrid (which has been quiet) bother me the most. I know that there are others that can and will cause significant damage, but those two areas I really watch.
