Another shallow one! They're getting a lot of big shakers, how long until something sinks?

In my experience with following engineered quakes the shallow ones that hit near the top of the hour are likely to be man-made....

This one hit at 23:04....So it might be an engineered quake.....

I am hoping there are more on the way in the next 24  to 48 hours.....{ mainly because I am bored and I love DOOM }
