Small Earthquake Rumbles Through Santa Cruz County

A 5.3 shake was recorded late on Saturday night and hit areas around Santa Cruz County along with other nearby cities.

Some folks may have gotten a rude awakening just before midnight on Saturday night after a good size earthquake with a magnitude of 5.3 hit 18 miles ENE of King City and shook the ground from Watsonville all the up to Felton.

According to the United States Geolgical Survey webstie, people from Aptos, Capitola, Santa Cruz, and as far out as Aromas, Gilroy, Salinas, and Fresno also reported to have felt the quake in the wee hours of the night. 

A smaller 3.1 aftershock hit the same area but nothing was reported to have hit in Santa Cruz County. The last time the San Andreas fault acted up was back in August when two small quakes hit the area.

My computer froze up and I had to shut it down...it seemed a lot cooler outside... my phone only rang once all night. So everything was normal here in Campbell.

I was laying in bed after having smoked a joint and felt my room undulate. I thought a heavy person had run out of my closet and into my hallway. I screamed like a girl. I'm 6'2" and am 220 lbs. My housemate is still mocking me this morning....

It woke me up, but everyone else in my house slept through it. It was a long one!

they have begun trying to lower http://www.coachoutletmls.com expectations.Consolidated Edison, for example, tucked an especially http://www.hemesbelscq.com dire note into a news release on Thursday afternoon. It said the http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com “vast majority” of its customers in New York City http://www.coachoutletonlinehl.net and the northern suburbs should have power by Nov. 11, http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org but a significant number could remain in the dark for http://www.coachoutletuso.net a week or more beyond that.John Miksad, the company’s senior http://www.coachfactorystorebg.org vice president for electric operations, said some “stragglers http://www.coachoutletonlinetb.com ” might not get electricity again until the middle of this http://www.coachoutlethcs.com month. Those living through the worst-case situation may http://www.coachoutletb1.com account for just a few percent of the 850,000 Con Edison http://www.coachoutletdi.org customers who lost power,
