2. Here's a link.

It was off the coast of Eureka, way north of San Francisco, but it was a 7.4 magnitude. That's a biggie.

5. San Fran here...didn't feel a thing
I believe it was off the coast some distance and they've issued a Tsunami warning for the entire West Coast, which may be routine.

24. They called it off. I went out to look and the streetcar is running
the hotels are open -- one restaurant closed.

But, this is California. We don't know if this is the beginning or the end. So, how do they know to call off the warning? There was just a 7.3 aftershock. :(

29. Um....it was 91 mi WSW of Crescent City, CA
That's not "centered" If it was centered in Crescent City the town would be decimated and it would be all over the news.

Edited on Tue Jun-14-05 10:56 PM by im10ashus
...why is the MSM NOT picking this up. There's Lou Dobbs, yammering away, as usual. Could they break in and give an update? Hell no! The earthquake isn't a celebrity driving an SUV. Damn.

20. 9:26 p.m. possible waves on S.F. beaches, says Weather Channel
Doesn't mean there will be any, but that is what they are warning

7.0 magnitude, according to them; epicenter offshore near Eureka.

25. It's cold and really windy here right now.
And looks like no one got hurt as the quakes are off shore. Thank goodness.

23. That's a big quake.
What was the one in the 80's? Wasn't it 7.4? The one that happened during the World Series?
