Another little one - 4.6 according to the TS - Earthquake shakes Humboldt Felt stronger than the last one though. 14 km (9 miles) north/northwest of Trinidad, at a depth of 11 miles.
ER Earthquake shakes up North Coast
Timely editorial, two days ago - Living on the edge
Humboldt State University geologist Lori Dengler recently delivered the ominous news that Humboldt County is in the midst of the longest period of seismic calm since records have been kept. It's been 14 years since the last earthquake big enough to break windows or topple chimneys.
The fact is we're due for another temblor big enough to rock our world -- literally.
That means now is the time to get ready. Really ready. Earthquake kits should be kept at home, in the car and at work, providing food for three days, water, flashlights, batteries and a change of clothes along with blankets and pet supplies. Check in with the Red Cross for a full list. Well, this wasn't the "big one!" but the message is worth noting.
