A lot more news on the San Jose earthquake from blogs than from News

I did some google searches. A half hour after the earthquake Google News had no hits for earthquake san jose while Google Blog had about 2000 hits. If you want to find out real recent information on a major event it looks like blogs are speedier!

The San Jose Mercury got a report up:

"A 5.6 magniture earthquake centered near Alumn Rock in San Jose struck at 8:04 tonight.
The quake, with an epicenter five miles northeast of Alum Rock, was felt across the Bay Area. Ten aftershocks with magnitudes of 1.3 to 1.8 were reported by 8:45 p.m.
There were no immediate reports of major damage, though there were reports of cellular and landline telephone service failing in some areas.

Here is some more information.

Hopefully there are no deaths.

Just a reminder. I bought survival kits about a year ago from an online company www.survivalkitsonline.com People really do need to get prepared. The fires in Southern California and the earthquake in San Jose should wake us up!!
