Me Doth Think They Exaggerate

Headline on CNN: Rain, quake prompt evacuations in Southern California

The truth? With no mudslides threatening, evacuation orders lifted in three Yorba Linda neighborhoods

The quake? Sayeth CNN: “Concerns grew Wednesday morning, when a 3.1-magnitude earthquake struck. Though it was not strong enough to be felt, officials felt that it might increase the odds of a landslide, Alders said.”

3.1?!?!? That’s a truck hitting a median out here. We don’t even stop our conversations for those.

(Grrr. What does Atlanta know about earthquakes.)
