This morning I was jarred awake by a short but loud 3.3 earthquake here in San Francisco. It was relatively small, but located very close, just 3 miles offshore and due West of my house in the Outer Richmond district. Even though it was a tiny quake in comparison, it reminded me of Chile and the numerous aftershocks I felt while doing earthquake and tsunami relief there in March. I'm just waiting for the day that an earthquake of that size hits Northern California. It's been a very long time.
Read the Surfline article here about my Chile tsunami relief experiences, and watch for an article I wrote coming in the next issue of Surfer's Path magazine.
