Okay now, what is it again?
Stop, drop and roll?
Stop, drop and run?
If you were one of the several cool kids who refused to participate in today’s earthquake drill when the sirens blared at 10:20 this morning, you may have just experienced a rude awakening from Mother Earth.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 4.0 earthquake struck Berkeley at 2:41 p.m. today, Thursday, Oct. 20. The quake was centered below the Clark Kerr Campus. (In July, a 3.3 earthquake was located in the same area.)
So far,there are no reports of damage … other than ego.
While the tremor was pretty mild, this may just be a sign of the coming apocalypse. Because, according to Monsieur Yoshua out on Sproul Plaza, the end of the world is scheduled to arrive tomorrow at 6 p.m.
So, does that mean 6:10 p.m. because of Berkeley time?
Did you feel it?
Let us know if you felt the earthquake and whether you practiced the “stop, drop and hold” technique. Or, if you just ran out of the building screaming.
