The USGS is reporting that the earthquake that shook us all up a few minutes ago -- at 1:07 p.m., to be exact -- richtered in at 5.3 5.5 5.6 (updated) and was centered near Weitchpec.
First off, everyone good? Let us know if otherwise.
As of 1:25 p.m. the Eureka Police Department had no reports of damage. But Humboldtians are providing their own reports on Twitter -- a few with some added hidden advertisements! Some highlights:
@healthsport: Earthquake makes for a more exciting workout@ HealthSPORT! Shake up your fitness routine today!
@weedglass : 5.5 earthquake just knocked a bunch of jars off the shelf and 0 breakage, that Per glass is tough stuff.
@Amy_Stewart : Yikes, that was a frisky little earthquake. I'm betting 4.9. Anyone else?
@ArcataScoop : All ice cream seems to have survived that earthquake.
@kaylakaylajo : Earthquake in humboldt county! Ahh I hope the weeds ok..
@KHUMradio : What earthquake?
UPDATE: A report from Weitchpec.
UPDATE: CNN thinks Weithpec is between "centered between Crescent City and Eureka and near the coast."
UPDATE: And because we know you were all concerned, Humboldt's most famous earthquake whisperer Chris Durant reports via Facebook that he's alive and well. (NOTE: Durant says "I'm actually wearing the same shirt today as in the video." Coincidence... OR CONSPIRACY?)
