Fortuna police dispatcher Tanya Kadle says he felt a quick jolt.

She says there have been no reports of damage or injury.

what sloppy writing--Fortuna's not southeast of Sac, it's northwest--and Tanya is a woman, not a man.

Maybe the quake moved Sacramento into Oregon and Tanya had a sex change.

It has HD36, and it's way overdue. Geologists estimate it'll happen by 2050 at the very latest. t'll make the Indian Ocean and Japan disasters look like child's play. The waves that head to Hawaii from the northeast will be absolutely immense. We'll have about 5 hours

Sorry for all the doom and gloom, but there's also the potential for a massive seismic collapse of Mauna Loa's western flank that would send a 500' tsunami racing across the state and hurl Hawaii back to the stone ages. The Pacific plate has been adjusting itself after the Indo, Japan, and Chilean quakes ... that leaves the strain on the Cascadia fault loading up energy for a huge one. Truly scary stuff.
