There was a lovely little 4.2 earthquake here last week. I tried to go on and blog about it right away, but blogger wouldn't let me in, so maybe they had some damage! Anyway, one of my favorite websites is the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program site, where you can go immediately to see what the richter scale measured the quake at, and, nerd that I am, register whether you felt it and fill out a little form about your experience. I've been doing this every time I've felt a quake for about a year, so I know my zip code is well-represented in tracking quakes. It'll show you a quake intensity map by zip code, as well as how many people responded by zip code, so you can keep track of how many of us nerds are busy.
