Few people in Curry County felt the ground move with the 6.9 magnitude earthquake that struck 50 miles offshore of Eureka Sunday evening — or the 6.1 magnitude temblor that struck at 5 p.m. Monday in the same area — but the odds are good they’ll get another chance.
The “Probability Report” of the U.S. Geological Society indicates there is a 90 percent chance of a “strong and possibly damaging aftershock” of 5.0 magnitude or greater in the week following the first quake.
EUREKA (AP) — A number of Curry County residents reported feeling a powerful magnitude-6.9 earthquake that struck late Sunday night off the coast of Eureka, Calif., about 110 miles south of Brookings. There were no immediate reports of injury or damage and no danger of a tsunami along the West Coast, officials said.
How does a community say goodbye to a dear friend they know they’ll never see again? They hold a party and drag out the memories — and then do it all over again for those who couldn’t make the first one.
