  • Stephanie will gather any additional information for next weeks paper. We are thankful there are no reports of damage or injury in our area. It has been reported early this morning up to 30 aftershocks so far. If you have a story to share post it here. It definitely got my attention. My husband is from CA and he has experienced much more, but other than being here in 83 for the last one felt in our local area it was a disturbing second experience for me. Please continue your social distancing and home in place unless you are work essential. Itís been a week for sure. Take care. B
