You can still feel a 2.0. Hell you can feel a 1 point something at times. It all depends on the ground one is on. I only heard that on the news right after it happen. I didn't hear anyone I know in that area who said they felt it.

LOL. My friends from Las Vegas felt it- but they were camping in the desert between El Centro and Yuma at the time!

I was bummed, I had just gotten home from there an hour before the quake. They said it was a wild ride and everyone got a little seasick, but it wasn't super scary as there are no structures. I kinda wish I could have been out there for that.

Check this out- SDSU put together a simulation of an 8.0 ripping down the San Andreas.

Science is tight.

How did you come to that conclusion?
