      Don't hold your breath for details. This is CNN. No details here, nor will they confuse the issue with little things like facts.

    I live in San Diego and I didn't feel anything. It is registered as occurring at 10:07 am. We have been getting so many close to that magnitude lately that anything below a 5.0 is not noticeable to us anymore.

    Why are we having so many earthquakes lately? They are occurring all over the world in record numbers. Well, let's take heed and get prepared – even for other disasters. http://cmdproducts.blogspot.com

    Every time someone walks down the hallway at work it feels lik a 4.0 earthquake. This isn't newsworthy.

    I didn't feel it. We have been getting them back to back to back lately. Getting a little 2012ish if you ask me....

    2012... their is a large scale shift in earths alignment in our solar system, Notradamus predicted this but thought it would happen all at once, or all of a sudden. This shift is causing stress on the continental plates.

    Why do they say "4.0 quake HITS southern California"?
    They should say "4.0 quake TICKLES southern California"!

    Repent! This is the end! Oh, okay, maybe it's only a not-so-strong quake. I just wanted to say it before some other religious zealot blurts it out. Snicker

    Thanks, Alex. You've called *ME* a nutjob too. I stock up rather heavily like that when I go to my place in the mountains for hunting season.
    Of course, I *DO* have a known terrorist connection. I am a decorated veteran of 27 years in the US Army.
    We certainly terrorized the buffet line!

    A 4.0 in California is business as usual. It has nothing to do with 2012, and it's hardly "breaking news" unless it actually knocks something down.

    Speaking of 2012, I'm really looking forward to 2013. I want to know what all the true believers in the doomsday hoax will be saying to rationalize the fact that the world is still here. (See http://www.2012hoax.org/ for more on that subject.)

    Ottawa had a 5.5 mag. earthquake on June 23, 2010. Highly unusual for Canada. I felt it in Toronto. The last one I recall was a decade ago. I'm really worried. Been having a few bad dreams. I posted them on my blog: http://bit.ly/aBTv5v
