5.4 Quake Centered Near Borrego Springs (KTLA News)
Another earthquake hit southern California this week. A magnitude 5.4 which struck at 5:53 p.m on Wednesday July 7th about 28 miles south of Palm Springs was felt across a large area – high rises in both Los Angeles and San Diego swayed – but we didn’t feel a thing at the Museum. Thankfully the epicenter was in a remote area, so it didn’t cause any major damage.
Earlier this year seismologists said the number of earthquakes greater than magnitude 4 in Southern California and Baja California had increased significantly in 2010, but they haven’t been able to fully explain the rise.
I had the stitches taken out my knee today. It looked red and nasty to me, but the doctor thought it was healing well… He told me I should avoid yoga for at least two more weeks, that it’s going to take about 6 months before the scar’s fully healed, and suggested I put on an ointment to aid the healing.
“Which one?” I asked.
“The are many in the drug store, but a plastic surgeon once told me that ‘Preparation H‘ (the one without hydrocortisone) is one of the best creams for scarring,” he replied.
