5.8 Earthquake about 20 miles from here... oh boy fun. Anyone else feel it?
Not here in Georgia but MSNBC is already reporting...
As always, anyone making love (other than (not then) to
themselves) at the moment will probably try to claim credit.
Glad you're ok, I just stumbled across the news on MSNBC and was thinking about you and other mutual friends we have.
I just came here to check as well... just got the alert on my iPhone... Hope everyone is okay...
I'm sure our mutual friends are ok, they are quite a bit further away from the epicenter than I am.
So did that wake you up?
Fives should be a snooze, but almost being a 6 can get one's attention.
Uh, yeah. Got me to take my fingers away from the keyboard for a minute, it sure did that.
I came to post that I'd seen an alert. I'm glad everyone is alright!
Man I hate hurricanes but at least we have months to guess where it's going to hit in advance! :sure:
Just now, a woman being interviewed about the earthquake by phone on MSNBC, actually said...
...wait for it...
"This was a 5.8 earthquake which, on a scale of 1-to-10, was a 7." :lol:
:thats: !rolling :rolling:
You see, there you go with that new math again.
Glad to see you guys are alright. But, for you guys it probably not that big of deal.
Center right near my house. I live in Pomona (Phillips Ranch area)
That wasn't Miss South Carolina from the 2007 pageant was she? :imwith: :lol:
Yeah, a guy from here had to go home to Pomona because it tripped his house alarm. That's a real nice area you live in, BTW.
I'm working in Poway (about 94 miles away from the epicenter) and I felt it! It felt like the second story was swaying then rolling for just a few seconds. Check out the website at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsus/Maps/US2/33.35.-119.-117_eqs.php - you can see the main one and all the little aftershocks. They said it was felt slightly in Vegas but I called my husband in Temecula (about 45 miles from it) and he didn't feel it. I told him I felt like the California happy cows getting a foot massage!:lol:
The sign of someone that's been in California for a while.
Earthquakes are one of the reasons my family left California when I was a teen. We went through a 5.2 that shook the house like a giant baby with a rattle.
Not exactly an experience I would care to repeat.
I’m just glad everyone is ok.
It really depends on what is underneath you. If you're on "fill" [be it man made or natural], you have the "jello" effect.
Only about 52 years (with a couple of minor time-outs in Washington, Arizona and Colorado)!
I lived up in Northern California for a short stent when they had a big one in Walnut Creek. I don't remember the magnitude but I remember watching the concrete light abutments sway like palm trees and the road ripple like a ribbon!
I'm in Northridge, home of the big one in '94. I wasn't here then, but you can tell who was by how they reacted. I was on the floor. The guy 2 cubes over walked back to his desk and sat in his chair, all while it was still rattling. Cool and scary at the same time. Biggest I've felt in the 5 years I've been here.
