UPDATE: There was a 3.5 Richters Earthquake that shook the San Fernando Valley in the middle of the night at around 2:58am Pacific Time. Huge felt report from all over Southern California including Palmdale, Azusa, Catalina Island, and San Diego! Here's the felt report@ http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/11/35-richters-earthquake-strikes-san.html NOW Todays EQ Blog:
There's the big one I mention in todays headline, right there around the middle of the list at 6.3 Richters and I now notice there were actually a few "Foreshocks" that began a few hours before the 6.3 and one struck that location a couple days before, too!

Then there is the story you might have heard, about the big "Gash" up there in Wyoming where the ground all of the sudden opened up the size of a football field and a hundred or so feet deep with several huge islands just standing alone out there in the middle of this huge gap that happened as a result of the ground opening up out near Sheridan, Wyoming. Here's at least one story on that subject, although there's now plenty of stories on the subject! Check out story@ http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/yawning-hole-opens-in-central-wyoming-thanks-to-wet-spring/ar-BBmIrDO?li=BBgzzfc&ocid I know I gave it as "Maybe a Mile Wide" or long or whatever, but it does look like it could be a mile in at least one direction if you seen the size of those guys they look like ANTS. . . compared to the size of it!!! It sort of looks like a "Mini-Grand Canyon"!!!
Haven't actually spent a real lot of time trying to figure out how that gash could have happened. I'm thinking ground dried up and contracted enough that it broke free and shrank in that manner, but they are making it sound more like it was some sort of geological thing.
There was also a 2.6 Richters Earthquake that struck 53 Miles West of Richmond, Virginia out there around the usual epicentral region, and with tons of felt reports but they do not reach all the way to Richmond and as of this writing none from Washington, DC and this shaker does not appear to be along the line that we are watching very closely along, either, in fact I am currently working on those town names and will be giving them out on this weeks "Earthquake Minute" if you all don't mind waiting until Friday:))) Thank-You for your patience, but there hasn't been too much else going on and so I thought I'd just wait and save all that until Fridays Show!!!
