6.4-magnitude earthquake in Southern California felt in Las Vegas

I just watched that on the news

I know the area well since I grew up there.  We had a lot of quakes back in the 60's and 70's, with the biggest close to me being the San Fernando quake in 71 when I was a freshman in high school.  It was only a 6.6 and freeway overpasses collapsed, etc.

Building seismic technology has improved leaps and bounds since then, but if this 7.1 would have been in a populated area closer to L.A., there would have been big damage and casualties  Ridgecrest is in the boonies.

They just had another, apparently in the same Ridgecrest area.  My nephew in Vegas says it was 7.1!

Yep, I need to update my bug out bag with more beer.....he, he.

Glad no one was killed or - as I hear it - seriously injured. Sounds a lot better than what happened in the last big quakes 20+ years ago.

This always makes me wonder about the BIG ONE, if and when it ever happens.

That's what SHE said!:biggrin:

Good thing you did not wake up with a big one.   Or maybe the wife would like that.  :whistling:
