April 26 is Richter Scale Day

Are you all shook up?

We celebrate Richter Scale Day with gusto each year on April 26. We might not yet know who founded this day, but we commemorate this day to honor the birth of the founder of the Richter scale — the very first instrument used to measure earthquakes — Charles Richter.

    1. I lived under those conditions in California. Strongest earthquake I actually experienced, Audrey, was a 4.7 in Virginia. We felt it in Washington, DC and I was one of the few who recognized it as an earthquake.
