Ah, So This Is Why Everyone Has Been Tense Today

It's been a strained, edgy day. So when the quake hit a few minutes ago, the theory of earthquake prediction was given another data point.

That was a good one. I could hear the house cracking as it stretched.

Here's the map.

I sent in a report to the USGS:

Deep, moderately loud noise as the ground shuddered sharply, followed by creaking. I could hear the house stretching. Then there was a low muttery sound, like thunder tailing off. It seemed to move from northeast to south.
