If that's the case, there would be 11 tornadoes and a UFO attack as well.

In related news, subby's mom rolled out of bed?

On a serious note, is a 2.1 noticeable as far as earthquakes go or would you only be aware once the USGS told you that's what it was?

Can you really feel a 2.1? We had a 4 something here a couple years ago and I didn't feel a thing.

By default it doesn't even show things below 2.5.

2.1 doesn't even make the news in California or Western Nevada. I thought this article was going to be about the roller coaster in the ocean, but that's an entirely different kind of sim altogether!

And where was New Jersey's earthquake prediction team in all this? Oh, that's right, it never existed. Well, they can't say they weren't warned.

Just lower taxes to 0% in January, raise them to 100 in December, and repeat. Works like a charm.

I hated that guy in SC2K. Especially when that damn road maintenance bug kicked in and that slice of the budget soared beyond the GDP of the farking Simnation. Put drop it by even 1%, one goddamned percent, and your roads turned to rubble in a year.

2.1? That's strong enough to make a plate rattle on a good day, right?

Strongest I've been in was the 2001 in Seattle. Not very strong, relatively, but still quite impressive (at least to me).

"that's an entirely different kind of sim"

I guess those tiny ones can be felt back east because of a more coherent bedrock that transmits motion better, as well as the quakes usually being far, far shallower. I tend to suspect isostatic rebound in random quakes like this in the continental interior. I wonder if all the weight of water from the Hurricane coming shore then flowing back to the sea can affect the plate enough to trigger quakes?

Out here in California, a quake usually has to be a 3 or higher to be felt, but the rock that makes up the crust here is pretty much pulverized and twisted, dampening the transmission of seismic waves.

I am waiting for it to come out, but I know that I need a better PC to get it to run better.

And be prepared for rolling blackouts. More than half of jersey's power comes from nukes. Atleast only a small amount of jersey's population would injured, I think more people in Delaware would be.
