There was a 3.6 in California and a 3.8 just over the border in Illinois down south here this morning. I felt it and it wobbled the cabinets in in the living room.
My house is solid masonry tile block construction with stucco on the outside and plaster on the inside. I have several cracks from the 5.0something we had back in 2002 or 2003. I have earthquake insurance and do not look forward to the day when one really lets go here. It should be noted that due to geology, a 5.0 or 6.0 quake in California is far less "powerful" than the same here.
Am I correct in saying we are on a major fault line.
I just google fault lines and found this:
Looks like Snorko is a heck of a lot closer.
My offices are located in one of the very few buildings built with earthquakes in mind. The building is constructed on a huge "floating slab" which should allow the building to shift laterally without collapsing when downtown turns to quicksand.
