earthquake-thumb1Despite last week’s warnings to be earthquake ready (given the number of tremors near the San Andreas Fault in the Salton Sea area), it was just today that we had our first noteable quake in the Big Bear area since St. Patrick’s Day. This afternoon’s earthquake, at 12:39pm, was of a 2.1 magnitude and registered a depth of over five miles, per the U.S. Geological Survey. The 2.1 magnitude quake was centered just three miles south of Big Bear Lake.
