Not the usual thing you might expect on our news page, but since there are a lot of people we know out in the California area, I felt it would be prudent to post some recent earthquake information.  There have been several big ones on the US edge of the Pacific plate over the last week, including a 5.2 in Southern California, a 7.8 in Chile, a 7.2 off Alaska, and a 4.9 near LA just yesterday.  This is not a good trend, especially with three of these large quakes happening within a day of each other.  It's a good time to brush up on earthquake preparedness incase a large one hits near a population center.  Duke might not be afraid of no Quake, but everyone else should take them very seriously.

You can visit the US Geological Survey's Earthquakes page HERE for the most recent updates and a wealth of earthquake data.

Edit:  A 6.4 just hit off the coast of northern Californa as I was typing this article.

Which is precisely why I posted this, Woods.  Since people become complacent if a big one does hit it's going to catch everyone with their pants around their ankles.  If one doesn't, well I've only wasted a few bytes of text.
