We didn't feel anything in Santa Monica...nor did our neighbors.  The weird
thing is that the Northridge quake sent strong energy into Santa Monica
through what some people think is a lens-like structure under the Santa
Monica Mountains.  This quake looked close to Northridge, but no
focusing of energy apparently occurred here this time.  But, due to this
proximity, I would guess that this may be some type of after affect of the
Northridge quake rather that a foreshock....but I am not sure.
