That's fairly minor, isn't it? I mean, to people used to earthquakes.

Man, how does Drudge find out about this stuff so fast? They must have inside connections.

Aren't most of Cali's earthquakes in the northern part of the state, in the San Francisco area, not so much in SoCal?

That's a medium sized earthquake, I guess. If I still lived there, my concern would be whether or not it is a preliminary quake just before a much more massive one.

Prepare ye for a California exodus and hide thee well thine distilled water and vanilla wafers.

I was chillen on my grandmothers couch back in the 94 earth quake freaking freeway collapsed on top of I-5 and i had to stay in L.A for a little longer then expected. I remember the rest of that day felt like you were on a boat. Ground was just swaying back n forth. IT was weird.

That's what I figured.

But the press will play it up like it's some sort of epic disaster. :rolleyes:

One day, I was sitting in the lobby of a recording studio on Sunset just minding my own business, Mr. Nightwish. As it so happened, I was seated in the receptionist's chair which had casters filling out some paperwork. One minute all was well. The next minute I was clear across the room, through a door, and jammed up against the vending machines.

What a ride.

That wasn't an earthquake. That was either Britney Spears falling off the wagon or the Carnie Wilson falling off of a step stool while shopping at Lane Giant.

It wasn't an earthquake afterall. Chuck Norris was just doing dead lifts with the heaviest object in LA and dropped Bill Braskey's balls.

Could Global Warming be responsible for these new "Modern Quakes" ?

Damn right. F*ck L. Ron Hubbard, and f*ck all his clones.

I could feel in San Diego, but it wasn't all that exciting. Pretty big letdown for my first time.

Yeah, I felt it here in SD.

It wasn't too bad here, but It was the first Earthquake I ever remember feeling. I'm usually asleep or in my car when they happen.

It scared the crap out of me though because my building is so damn old, and cheap. It was creaking all over the place and swayed a few inches side to side.

I'm in carlsbad and it shook my chair and my office walls shifted/creaked a bit.

Lasted about 15 seconds.

First one I've felt in SD since I moved here ('97).

Kinda spooky....cell usage went out/maxed out...so service was unavailable. Can only imagine if a "big one" ever occurs..

I was on the 9th floor of a high rise in Beverly Hills in a meeting with 2 women. They both freaked out. I had to be the man and calm them down, when on the inside, I was freaking out too. It's a very helpless feeling, especially in a tall building where there's no escape. It's a real adrenaline pumper.

It's now being called a 5.4. It's the 6th earthquake I've felt in 18 years in California. Tha't split evenly 3 north and 3 south. It is the most violent jolt I've felt, but the shortest in length, even though the number is somewhat lower than most I've felt, so I'm guessing that means I'm closer than usual.

No damage, just some things falling over at the office in Glendale, and ran home to visit my very freaked out 5 month old puppy, and no damage there, just some loose dirt sliding down the hill a bit behind my house near Pasadena but no damage to the retaining walls.

Let's hear it for building codes!!

DANE! DANE! SPEAK TO US, DANE!

I was driving and didn't even feel it.

Little known fact: If you're driving in your car during an earthquake, you're not going to feel a thing (that is, unless your road happens to collapse).

The bad thing was that I didn't have cell service for almost an hour, so I couldn't check in with my wife and newborn who were at home (and safe, thankfully). And internet service at the office I was visiting was down, too (as were the phones - probably overloaded).

I think it was kinda scary for people in high rises but for the people who I've talked to that were in their homes, they barely felt a thing.
