(3)During the first hour, reporter and editor for Earthfiles.com(1), Linda Moulton Howe presented news on the hot rock mystery in California.
According to Linda, the "unique and really mysterious" hot rocks were exposed after a landslide in the Los Padres National Forest. She said a test conducted at a depth of 11 1/2 feet below the rocks measured the ground temperature at 584-degrees Fahrenheit.
