More news you can't use. Tiny earthquakes happen all the time. Are you going to start reporting on every fender-bender now?

Ditto what "Useless" wrote. This is CALIFORNIA, dudes! We have REAL earthquakes here! If a quake isn't 4.5 or better, it's not worth a story.

A quake story like this is like reporting that a start-up got $2.1K in venture capital -- no story at all!
