Trumpyland Earthquakes starting to go nuts now
Since this is a deep normal earthquake, it may be a 5, but no seismometers called it that. Only Intensity 4, so my velometer would have recorded 1 cm/s. However, it was very widely felt, again close to an m5 felt area.
Getting these twice a week has brought up the seismic energy rate a notch. The m7 is looking closer. The last m5 did not bring out any inane comments, maybe this one will.
Addition - Velometer reading 5 cm/s means chimney down, 10 cm/s - old downtown down, 20 cm/s drywall repair, 50 cm/s walk away from house. The m7 will read 100 - 200 cm/s, things thrown in the air.
