Strong Earthquake Jolts SoCal – July 7

Posted by feww on July 8, 2010

Earthquake Measuring up to 5.8Mw Hits S. California

The quake was preceded by a foreshock and followed by about a dozen aftershocks.

One of the aftershocks struck the LA area, but the details were later removed from the USGS/EHP website. The quake and its aftershocks may have caused some structural damage near the epicenter of the mainshock.

As an expression of protest against Google for censoring with impunity information posted on this Blog, Fire Earth has abandoned its research into California earthquakes.

The following details were released by USGS/EHP.
