The aftershocks from last night’s earthquake have been coming in fast and furious, it seems, much more rapidly than they should. Or so it seems to me at least. I’ve lived in California all my life, and I’ve been through many earthquakes. I still have vivid memories of the Loma Prieta quake that took out the Bay Bridge and several other landmarks, and I don’t remember the aftershocks being so close together, and I certainly remember them being weaker than the original quake. But these aftershocks are growing more powerful, and coming closer together.
More reports of road closures as well. Rumors say that Highway 80 between here and Davis is closed, but I don’t know anything for sure about that — maybe someone in the Davis area could confirm that.
The news is silent, of course. Which is odd, because the news is normally all over earthquakes, especially ones in major metropolitan areas. Thus, I have no idea how much damage has been done or how many injuries or even deaths have been sustained.
It’s a weird day altogether.
