Earthquake, Earthquake…….Who Says California Real Estate Isn’t Moving?
As I sat down to begin a new post (my mind was somewhat blank), the earth began to shake. My table shook and the light overhead began to sway. That’s right folks we just got hit by an earthquake. I called out to the family that it was an earthquake and to get in a doorway. As with most quakes that I have gone through (excluding Loma Prieta), the earthquake was over before we truely realized it was an earthquake. According to the local news broadcast, the preliminary reading was 5.6 on the ritcher scale (not confirmed by USGS) and it was located 9 miles northeast of San Jose. It will be interesting to see how big it was and who’s fault it was (pun intended). See below for USGS map.
