It's someones back yard. I bet that pool was sloshing.

Thanks to the twit that twittered that their real estate price just plummeted, too.

"Welp honey, there goes the neighborhood. The Faults just moved in next door."

I'm by bundy and Santa Monica. Felt like a strong couple of jolts. I initially thought short 5.5 or something. Was surprised it was supposedly smaller.

Didn't bother to get out if bed though. Crap I work in one of those high rises on Wilshire. just great. Don't want to be there when another one hits.

I was in my bathroom washing my hands and the strangest thing occurred seconds before that EQ hit. I felt a roll of energy go through my body just seconds before.

Actually, the way you just described that it may have been the "ESP" wave. The first physical wave to arrive is the P (or Primary) wave. It is the first physical sensation we experience.

Maybe you had a psychic experience just prior to that?

Not sure about that...the energy wave felt real and rolled west to east. I'll tell ya one thing though, I'm gonna have a talk with my two dogs because both of them were sleep and never did get up. They're still sleeping, like nothing ever happened.

I think they had their "EQ Tuners turned off"!

Ever since I was a kid I've noticed that. It's gotta be some wave that can be felt but not heard. It's instantly familiar and gets your attention then BAM! Earthquake

It felt like being next to a huge speaker and feeling the sound waves emanating. Then Bang! I thought briefly for a second, "what the heck was that", then the quake hit.

Not sure if anyone else noticed that.

So, I guess I felt the P wave before the jolt? Just read your link.

Thanks for the info 👍

Glad to read everyone's OK. I live in a seismic zone elsewhere and like you when I felt that sensation during one of our quakes, I also heard a loud rumble like the sick motor on a humungous truck idling outside. Afterwards I was left with a ringing in the ears and a funny feeling in my chest for about an hour. So my question to you is whether you had any similar residual sensations?

Centered inland in Westwood, CA. Is this the beginning of something more to come given the 6.9 that just struck off the coast of San Fransisco? Hopefully not. Stay safe.


Last time I checked, san fran was not in Oregon..


What? 6.9 Earthquake Rocks San Francisco


Odd. Why is that newspaper article calling it 'rocks San Francisco' when the epicenter was way up near the Oregon border, 250 miles away from SF? They barely felt it, same as here in Southern Oregon.

If you look quickly, you will see the quake that hit on the graph.

Looks like there was a smaller one prior to the 4.4.

Quake cam in Los Angeles


Watch a live news stream of the quake cam in the KABC-TV newsroom, covering Los Angeles and Southern California.


live cam link


If you missed it this time around, it will come around again. Not sure how long it takes.

I have been watching the live cam since the 4.4 earthquake . Wonder why the lines continue to be so wiggly looking ?

Something still going on ??

screenshot for posterity, the live drum will eventually move on to the next day


that one "prior" is actually after, a line down on the graph, about an hour later, M2.7

I was thinking the same thing. The upper lines are smooth & thin. The lines appearing now are shaky & darker.

Muzzy, Olivine or others~ please give your thoughts and expertise

The background "jiggling" is caused by automobile traffic.
The image below shows the location of the ABC7 drum. (ignore the earthquakes on the map--those are from January--I just reused the image, lol)

I think that sensation is caused by infrasound, generated by the P-wave, as suggested by intrptr. Earthquake waves are very low frequency, lower than human hearing can detect, but you can still "feel" them. It is a strange sensation.

I liken it to that Skittles commercial from a few years back, where the dude is lying on a bed of steel BB's with the heavy bass music playing--vibrating through your whole body.

I also heard a loud rumble like the sick motor on a humungous truck idling outside…

I can't find the link… somewhere I read that a seismic trembler is silent.

What we actually hear is all the man made stuff around us rattling.

it's ok...there are people back east that think Colorado is out west...even though it's 1000 miles inland from the Pacific ocean. that like saying Iowa is back east because it's also 1000 miles from the Atlantic ocean



Really?
If you live in the east then wouldn't Colorado be out west? If I live in Washington state then yes Iowa is in the east.

Maybe it's because I live atop granite? Thing is, there was a little cupboard rattling when we had our 5.0, but the sound I'm talking about was quite distinct from that, and there was no traffic nor trucks at the time.

You describe perfectly what I've often experienced in my sleep. Just before a quake hits,
it wakes me up with exactly what you just articulated so eloquently.

And indeed a 4.4 seems to be a mid range for EQs. Most likely the severity can be mild
or ferocious according to depth and location. Fifteen minutes from the epi, puts you
in a precarious situation by location. No where to run. The times are right and I think
everyone should be paying attention. Can't predict anything and you are in quake country.
Just remember panic is always wrong and paranoia is only good if you're paranoid enough. (Phage)

Exactly...you can feel it and I swear I saw it. I was just waking up though, so maybe I was in my usual morning blur 👉😜

Chris Schauble's reaction to the EQ is priceless.
