Brawley area seismic storm calmer today

brawley-quakes-sinkhole-ivp.jpgSo far on Monday there have been just four earthquakes measuring magnitude 3 or higher in the Imperial Valley, and none larger than 3.8. That's a lot easier for residents to take than Sunday's swarm, which included two quakes over 5.0 and another late last night that came in at a 4.9. Schools remain closed today and there has been scattered damage in the city of Brawley, including a hospital evacuation.

Oh and this: It's 106 in Brawley today, with a predicted high of 113 on Tuesday.
