A 5.7 magnitude earthquake rattled Southern California last night, about 70 miles east of San Diego.
CNN reported the earthquake hit at 9:30 PST. It was succeeded by up to 40 smaller earthquakes or aftershocks measuring up to a magnitude of 4.5.
The U.S. Geological Survey is saying that all of yesterday's earthquakes are in fact aftershocks of the earthquake that struck on April 4 in Mexico, with a magnitude of 7.2.
Last night's 5.7 magnitude earthquake rattled the fans at San Diego Padres' Petco Park, causing a very brief pause in the Padres' game against the Blue Jays. Could it have been the earthquake shake up that caused the Padres to lose to the Blue Jays in a final score of 6-3?
At the risk of repeating myself (something my husband and kids will claim I do often) I can't quite comprehend the number of earthquakes that have made headlines in the past few months.
Do you live in Southern California? Did the earthquake rattle your bones last night?
Fortunately there were no reports of serious damage or injury related to the 5.7 magnitude earthquake that struck Southern California last night.
