(Quote by geophysicist Robert Sohn, from the article linked by Space Cadet in her post.) I'd have felt more comfortable if he'd said something like "this kind of implosive seismicity has rarely been observed" and thus made it clearer that we know more about the surface of the moon than the sea beds of our own planet...
"This kind of implosive seismicity is rare anywhere on earth."

A magnitude M=4.3 earthquake at 7:44 AM (PDT) this morning (June 28) was located in the Sierra Nevada just south of Long Valley caldera (2 miles east of Convict Lake, 8 miles WNW of Tom's Place). This earthquake will have produced perceptible shaking throughout the Mammoth Lakes area. As of this update, it has produced only a few, small aftershocks, the largest of which was a M=1.3 earthquake at 8:03 AM.
