    Some interesting shaking on our side of the Ring of Fire. I happened to notice last night within the hour that the mag. 6 in the Gulf of California happened. Also, “red” were three other eqs: farther north a 3.3 in Baja California about 20 minutes before, then a 2.9 at Baja two minutes after the 6.0 and a minute later a 3.8 in Utah near an extinct volcano.
