WATCH the Earth move LIVE

SANTA CRUZ, CA:  TXESP just recorded a magnitude 5.3 earthquake in highly populated Santa Cruz, CA.  The event had an epicentral distance of ~ 20 pol deg and a focal depth of 9.9kms.  It occurred within the past few hours at 19:29hrs UTC or 12:29 pm PST.

Below: Shown are the two seismograms recorded at Station E1TX in Spring, TX.  The first image is the recording from the EQ-1 seismometer, the last seismogram is the recording from the Raspberry Shake.  We were surprised to record this earthquake as the hot subsurface dissipates seismic waves btwn CA and Texas.  The last image is the range in frequencies recorded by the Raspberry Shake Seismometer.
