4.7 Magnitude Earthquake Felt in Indian Wells... Raises Interesting Question...
The center of the earthquake was about 120 miles southeast of Los Angeles... so basically within 30 miles of Indian Wells. It happened around 10AM local time.
Brett Haber and Tracy Austen say it was definitely felt in the area. No major damage reported in the immediate area and none at Indian Wells.
Aftershocks are expected throughout the afternoon... and this raises and interesting question...
The initial earthquake occurred before play started. But what if an aftershock was felt during a match. Do they call a let? Play it out?
Would they possibly suspend play for a short while to make sure everything is all right???
What do you guys think? I mean, I'd be scared shitless if I felt an earthquake while I was playing tennis...
