For someone who hasn’t lived in Southern California, or Vancouver this was a first for me. An earthquake!
Now for the power of social media – while people were gathering to ask “did you feel that” I opened up my BlackBerry, logged on to Twitter and read several posts almost immediately….earthquake felt in Washington, Virginia Ottawa and Toronto. As every thing seemed fine I headed to my computer and to this site:
Here’s the report moments afer:
|Depth||1 km (~0.6 mile) (poorly constrained)|
|Location Uncertainty||horizontal +/- 10.9 km (6.8 miles); depth +/- 7.4 km (4.6 miles)|
|Parameters||NST=390, Nph=390, Dmin=57.9 km, Rmss=1.17 sec, Gp= 47°,
M-type=regional moment magnitude (Mw), Version=6
So naturally after all that I’m curious – did you feel that?
