St. John Photo of the Day

Trunk Bay St. John US Virgin Islands (USVI)

Trunk Bay

This is undoubtedly the most photographed scene in all St. John. It’s a magnificent vista and is always beautiful no matter what the conditions. On Monday afternoon, however, the conditions were just about perfect, clear skies and white fluffy clouds.

Two Earthquakes Last Night
Last night we experienced two moderately strong earthquakes. I was awake for the first, a 5.3 at 12.28 am and slept through the second, a 5.1 at 4.28 am.

It was a pretty good shake that only lasted a few seconds. I thought about going outside, but it was over before I made my move. A Facebook friend wrote this: “…The cat climbed onto my chest and then the shaking started and when a pan fell over in the kitchen it scared us both pretty good…”

Wednesday April 13 12.30 am: I felt a fairly strong earthquake just now. I wonder how big it was. Guess I’ll check in the morning.

12:45 am: Ah technology! I already have my answer: 5.3

We live on an active fault. Historically we have two major earthquakes per century, but we haven’t had one since 1867.
