Too many earthquakes!

3 quakes in just over an hour and I almost wish I were hone just instead of camping. The bigger one was about 5.1 followed by by a 3.4 quake within 15 minutes.

I'm at San Clemente state beach in southern CA. I'm in the habit of getting gas in the truck after setting up camp which I did yesterday. This might be an interesting night.

Smart move on your part to fuel up the truck after setting up camp.

Camping can be a real adventure at times on its own. But earthquakes
Stay safe!

Never know when you need to make a fast exit so I rather have a full tank of gas. If nothing else there's one less step to do before departing.

There's still aftershocks but the shaking had calm down here for me. I did consider going home to check on things or even cutting camping short but the news mentioned to expect slower traffic due to over passes being checked for safety.

Terier, having experienced quite a few earthquakes in the 55 years i've lived in Cali, i'd rather be camping during an earthquake, than at home.
my trailer has a suspension, but my house does not.
plus there's no danger of broken gas lines.

Bikendan,
That's a valid point about gas lines and all. I have live here is SoCal for almost of my life and been through many quakes including some of the larger ones. I just rather be closed by to love ones & pets.

Last night after each aftershock some of the news stations were harping on the chance of a larger quake within the next 3 days. Today its like a whole new story.

Now today seems like a regular day at the campground.

My daughter in law is in San Onfre and is on her own while my son is deployed. I'm sure she's wishing the earthquakes would stop. Everyone be safe!!

Wow! I just looked at my earthquake app and you all have had quite a few quakes the last few days.
We just had a 3.7 about 20 minutes ago here in central OK. But only about 8 the last 48 hours, far less than ya'll. We have had boocoo's of them the last 3 years, but our largest was only about a 5.3-5.7..... can't remember for sure, was a couple years ago.

Very disconcerning feeling a quake for sure, you guys can keep them, I'd rather have our tornados and hail.

Have a good trip and hopefully not too much more shakin' for ya!
