Easter Sunday. We went to the movies in the afternoon to see Shutter Island, and just before the previews started, the seats were shaking. The shaking and rattling continued for about 30 seconds, which is quite long when you are trying to decide what to do – stay put or get out.
During the movie, things continued shaking. I checked online and found that the earthquake had hit Mexicali with a strength of 7.2. Mexicali is not far from here.
For the rest of the evening, things have been shaking and rattling. Are these aftershocks, or are these foreshocks?
I loaded up a couple of flashlights with new D-Cell batteries and put them next to the bed.
Let’s hope they were aftershocks – and this is over.
