La Habra Earthquake


Recommended Posts

Earthquakes are my jam!

Fun fact:

If you count the number of seconds between the first jolt and when you feel the roll begin, you can estimate the distance of the epicenter.

P-waves (first jolt) travel around 5 mps faster than S-waves (roll)

I counted 2 seconds, and La Habra is about 10 miles from me.

What a coincidence, Angel Oracle likes torrential life threatening rains.


They fascinate me, and being in California, we are in relatively safe buildings designed to withstand earthquakes, so they don't really make me feel scared.


They're more exhilarating for me, awe inspiring, and can happen at any time with practically no predictability. There's amazing power created and distributed along hundreds of miles when tectonic plates move, and the fact that as humans we're so vulnerable and helpless, it's just amazing how the earth can move that way.

Here in the SFV, the quake 2 weeks ago felt much much stronger.

What it looked like from the broadcast if you haven't seen it already:


The worst part about not having Time Warner Sportsnet is not being able to hear Vin Scully.
