Update: The USGS map now lists the quake as a 4.9 — hardly worth getting up off the couch for. Blame the error on the furloughs.
Shake, rattle, roll. The USGS site
(over which hangs a disclaimer about possible inaccuracies from the government shutdown) reports a 5.0 quake struck 52 km west/northwest of Eureka. It was strong in the Journal
office. A slow build to a rolling climax. Who else felt it?
