Palos Verdes 1.9 Earthquake

On Thursday April 30 at 5:18pm there was a 1.9 earthquake on Palos Verdes Road right on the edge of the beautiful pacific ocean. Curiously, about 1/2 mile to the south of the epicenter is an area called Portugese Bend. Nice imagery, isn't it? Anyway, Portugese Bend is falling into the ocean. It is a landslide area and when you drive on the road they have signs saying the road is subject to movement. Perhaps next time the quake will be higher and there will be some real movement.
