"I felt it" reports:
Navarro Ridge, Albion Ca. / not felt: My well started free flowing on Sunday. It lasted for about 1/2 a day. I first observed this type of happening after the China Olympic E.Q. when the well free flowed for 3 days. My weak water bearing aquifer is in a confined marine terrace. The well is located at the top of the steep Navarro Ridge approximately 60 feet east of a fault trace. The easterly springs on the sides of the ridge also started free flowing. My neighbor to the west of the fault has been unable to develop water.
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
