This one a 3.5, again from the same vicinity as last week’s shaker:
A minor earthquake occurred at 12:23:23 PM (PDT) on Thursday, August 16, 2007.
The magnitude 3.5 event occurred 7 km (4 miles) N of Chatsworth, CA.
The hypocentral depth is 5 km ( 3 miles).
I was sitting working on the laptop when it hit – my girlfriend was standing next to me. I felt it, she didn’t… although she was talking on the phone at the time.
Two in a week? Yep… definitely time to heed the LAFD’s advice to be prepared.
(disclaimer: I’m just guessing this was an aftershock – I’m a blogger, not a scientist)
