Did you feel it… AGAIN??
At 8:19:52pm today, an earthquake which immediately registered as a 7.1 sent its waves through Newport Beach. The quake was centered at 35.766°N 117.605°W, at virtually the same location as the previous quake on July 4th.
Yes, 156 miles from Newport sounds like a long way away, but that roller definitely was felt by this author, all the way down here on Balboa Peninsula!
