Log this correction on the Earthquake in San Bernardino, California

About an hour after the earthquake hit, the magnitude was downgraded to a 4.5.

Despite the relatively low Richter rating, the earthquake got coverage in many places, including the Inquisitr ("The quake was centered about a mile south of San Bernardino, and was felt across Los Angeles, San Pedro and Orange County").

Obviously it got local coverage also from places such as Franklin Avenue, Life in Claremont (who pointed out that there was a much more damaging 6.1 earthquake in Costa Rica), and Claremont Insider.

But the best thing I read last night was a tweet from @yuglook:

Wonder if any of my students felt the earthquake. Might be interesting to an earthquake problem since we just learne d about logarithms.

That's a teacher...always educating.
