A magnitude-4.5 earthquake hit about seven miles north of the Southern California town of Cabazon early Tuesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Based on GPS data Dave received on Peanut’s Monday night campsite, she was about seven miles from the quake’s epicenter. (I calculated it using the National Hurricane Center’s latitude/longitude distance calculator.)
Peanut has not done a Tuesday check-in yet (her Monday night location is marked on the map above). Considering the temblor, which took place practically under her tent, was felt as far away Long Beach and San Diego, she’ll have quite a story to tell.
