  1. 5.0 in Southern California. First it was 5.3, then missing, then 4.7..EU reports it as 5.0. USGS is not showing. Strange.

      • the video with all the toilet paper in the isle is got to be fake,, first it is not a toilet paper isle , second everything is still on the shelves and third the toilet paper is from the front of the isle to the end of the isle,, just saying

      • This post hasn’t a video — did you mean Dutchsinse post?
        … maybe it’s from Strange Sounds post. That looks like one of those stacked displays fell over. Just a minor aftershock .. but there were a lot of them. West coast is very active from Chile to Alaska.
