Posts Tagged ‘bay area earthquake’

whoa!  That was a shaker this morning.  As of now, it’s being listed as a 6.0 earthquake but that will probably change as more data comes in.  I’ve seen it listed as a 5.7, 6.0, and 6.1 on different maps.

Times like this I really miss the old KGO, when everyone would call in and talk about what happened in their area.  There is no television coverage about it, either (at the time this was posted, it was at least an hour after the earthquake).  Only a scroll on a KPIX paid-programming show that lists the magnitude and that’s it.

Pathetic.

We’re on our own, public, and no longer have a place to share this stuff.  How pathetic is it?  I actually went to sfgate to read about it and the comments that have populated from 17 to 73 to 162.  That’s the only place left to share, I guess.

Here’s a link to David Wiegand’s article on sfgate about the local coverage:
