    I was fishing last night and about 9:30 I felt the jetty moving and I thought it was me. I look alongside the jetty and conçluded it was one of the boats touching the Jetty. But it was around 9:30 pm.

    These tremors happen daily though they are not as intense as to cause real concern or damage but one feels them on a regular basis.

    “…we are just dog fleas on a dog back, as in we are the fleas, and the earth is the dog…”
    A very interesting perspective, Ken Debajee…. and I agree. When the dog moves, scratches, etc. the fleas will experience dislocations. It is, therefore, important that they are firmly anchored on the dog’s back/fur lest they are thrown to other parts of/from its’ body. Similarly, it will be useful that we understand the need to provide the minimum infrastructure to minimise our disruption when the earth shakes.
