View 4/7/09 Microquake Locations in a larger map

Just for fun, we wanted to see exactly where last night's two microquakes were located.

The first one, a 2.0 minor shaker, was at 7:47 p.m. was on the 1600 block of Silver Lake Blvd. near Effie Street. That places it right by the 7-11 and the trendy LAMILL Coffee.

A few hours later at 10:07 p.m. a 2.5 quake struck under the new Vista Hermosa Park and LAUSD's Edward Roybal Learning Center just west of downtown. As Jesus Sanchez at The Eastsider LA notes, "the construction of the school, which once was designed to replace Belmont High School, was delayed for several years in part because an earthquake fault runs through the property."
