7.3 Earthquake & Happy 2 months

I experienced my first real earthquake last night – a 7.3 quake with the epicenter off the coast of Nicaragua.  Actually, I slept though most of it, but I won’t go into that. We’re all OK and for as big of a quake as it was, there isn’t a lot of damage throughout the country.  It was Nica’s way of saying,  “Happy 2 month anniversary Nica 64!”

Also, I explained subduction faults/zones and the workings of strato volcanoes to my spanish class today…in spanish!  Once a science teacher, always a science teacher.  If you want to learn more about the earthquake, the USGS has a great site with the most recent earthquakes here: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/  Check it out!

  1. Wow, that’s a pretty strong one. I’m glad there wasn’t much damage. Cool that you were able to explain it to your class! Congrats on 2 months in Nica! Love you.
