In the last 15 minutes, we've had 3 earthquakes! The first measured 5.0, the second measured 2.5, and the third came in at 3.1. They are centered in an area of Southern California called the South Bay (Redondo Beach, Long Beach, Torrance, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Inglewood, Lennox, among other small cities). We are about 30 miles away from the epicenters of Lennox and El Segundo, but we sure did feel the first one! Sucker lasted at least 10-15 seconds.

There's a whole lotta shakin' goin' on in Southern California tonight! If you're interested, here's a link to the Earthquake List from the government; it's updated regularly.

    I guess when you live in Southern California, you're just so used to earthquakes that unless they reach above the 6.0 point on the Richter scale, they're not such a big deal. None of the temblors from last night were very strong Richter scale-wise, but they were fairly close to the earth's surface; that makes them feel much stronger than the scale says they measured.
