John McCabe Does Earthquakes

This evening the Santa Lucia Rockhounds met at the Pioneer Museum in Paso Robles for their November meeting. Semi-retired Cuesta College geology instructor John McCabe gave a PowerPoint talk about earthquakes. It was both a general primer as well as went into additional detail regarding the geological setting of California as it pertains to earthquakes as well as our local earthquake history. This included the 2003 San Simeon Quake whose anniversary rapidly approaches.
This image is deceptive as it make the crowd in attendance look smaller than it was.
A day that shall live in infamy locally.
Now it has been nearly 157 years since this event last occurred. It has happened before and it will happen again.
