Not Wow Like The Last Post, But Still Wow.

10:50pm local time and that was a strong tremor. It scared Raxi. Her li'l tail is all puffed up. Woke Jen (who's feeling poorly, btw) up, too. A fairly strong jolt and then rattle for about... oh, 3 seconds, I'd say. I'll update this with more info once the seismological sites I know have had time to update.

UPDATE ONE: First data -- from the OVSICORI (Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica), same place as the info in the last post. See the jolt?

UPDATE TWO: Also from OVSICORI, preliminary magnitude of 4.3, epicenter about ten miles from here on the east side of San José

That's scary stuff, man. I've only ever felt one here in Massachusetts, which originated around Plattsburgh, NY and knocked pictures off our walls; that was plenty for me, Jaquelin Suzanne notwithstanding.

Hope Jen feels better soon - I'm likewise under the weather, and it stinks!
