5.4 Quake

If you were around town today and felt the ground shaking, don't worry. Claremont wasn't blowing anything up today.

It was only an earthquake, a moderate one at that. The magnitude 5.4 quake hit at 4:53pm near Borrego Springs and Indio (see, there was a bit of a Claremont connection). The US Geological Survey has all the information on the event. If you felt it, take some time and complete the USGS questionnaire.
