"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.
