Earthquake last night?
      #1602521 - 08/13/14 08:53 AM (108.28.169.139)

Any reports? All my STJ and STT friends are reporting the big 4.9 earthquake last night at 11PM. I was watching the USGS alerts starting at 6PM and the whole area was lighting up with smaller earthquakes until the 4.9 ripped.

Cheers, RickG

I saw some stuff about it on Facebook.
They felt it for sure.

The epicenter was on the south side of the drop, well up on the VI plate so it had good solid rock to send the shaking through to the islands. 4.9 on the other side of the trench, which is where most of them happen, doesn't feel as significant.
