Did you feel the tremble of the magnitude 5.5 earthquake yesterday near Brawley CA. ?
Sunday afternoon at 1:58PM the ground shook for many Yuma residents. While I didn’t feel it my oldest daughter did and we all just thought she
imagined it because everyone else was too busy to notice the earth move. The earthquake was centered 2 miles south to southwest of Brawley, or about 11 miles northeast of El Centro California. It was relatively shallow at 5.6 miles beneath the surface.
An earlier quake of magnitude 5.3 hit at 12:32 PM 3 miles northwest of Brawley and throughout the evening there were aftershocks ranging from magnitude 2.5 to 4.9 on the Richter Scale. A bit closer to home San Luis Rio Colorado Sonora Mexico had a magnitude 2.6 earthquake at 4:36PM. If you were shopping in San Luis Arizona or Mexico you might have felt a slight wobble.
While prior years have had little activity the last year and a half have been a bit of fun with these trembles. The wife says I’m nuts for getting excited and tracking quakes on the USGS website but she’s also a survivor of the 7.1 magnitude San Fransisco earthquake that devastated the area. She’s perfectly fine now where the ground barely moves.
