5.5 5.6 Magnitude Earthquake Hits 31 miles North East of Eureka Ca.

I have no word of injuries or damage but we were shook up by the 5.5 magnitude earthquake that struck at 1:07 pm Pacific time.  It was about 18 miles east of Trinidad.

The U.S.G.S. has upgraded the quake to 5.6

  3. The North Coast Journal reports that Caltrans had to move about 4 yards of rocks that blocked all lanes on Highway 96. The rock slide was caused by the quake but was quickly moved and traffic was back to normal in a matter of minutes.

  4. at peace with crazy,
    Your husband was practically on top of the epicenter. Glad everyone is ok.
    About those tornados, they are super rare in California but I hear earthquakes are becoming more common in the midwest. Welcome to California.
