For all of you natural phenomena fans - 7.2 quake offshore from El Salvador last night. Tsunami warning for the area - kind of amusing to see that an 8 inch high "tsunami" was in fact experienced in the warning area - but hey, better warned than not.
Also of interest - 500 (yep - five hundred) quakes in the Imperial County area of California in 24 hours over the past weekend - several over 5.0 (which is a dish-shaker and house-trailer derailer but not a killer - well unless you are under the trailer when it happens). This is an area known to be prone to clusters of quakes but for them 500 is lot!

The tsunami warning was cancelled. They had a very small tsunami wave.

Naturally it was on the other side - the pacific, where El Salvador is located...... then again, Elbert is right to remind us seeing as a lot of our own residents seem to forget their compas points from time to time. :-0
This was not about here - it was just nature info that I found interesting ..... and funny that you can have an EIGHT INCH Tusnami. Clearly the term Tsunami refers to the nature of the wave, not the size!
