This is a site i bookmarked... to get imediate earthquake information.

Yep... scroll down to the scale charts.

Felt it strongly down in South Orange County... near El Toro and Mission Viejo. It was exciting how strong this one felt. Ususally we're too far from the epicenter to feel the stronger shakes. I'm LA now... missed being reallly close by an hour. I rather have earthquakes than tornados and hurricanes anyday... its quick...
All artists are obssesive compulsive... its what keeps us going!
The science inspires the dream, the dream creates the art...the art fuels the dream and continues to inspire the science!
