NO tsunamis expected. That's a relief!



To: U.S. West Coast, Alaska, and British Columbia coastal regions
From: NOAA/NWS/West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center
Subject: Tsunami Information Statement issued 07/29/2008 at 11:44AM PDT

At 11:42 AM Pacific Daylight Time on July 29, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 5.6 occurred 80 miles/129 Km southwest of Barstow, California.

The magnitude is such that a tsunami IS NOT EXPECTED. However, in coastal areas of intense shaking, locally generated tsunamis can be triggered by underwater landslides. This will be the only WCATWC message issued for this event.

The location and magnitude are based on preliminary information. Further information will be issued by the United States Geological Survey or the appropriate regional seismic network.

Oh yeah, I felt this baby, and I was about 50 mi. from the epicenter near the 60 and 57 freeways. I was telling my family it felt like a 4.0 if it was local, and about a 6.0 if it was farther away. My son's mom got up from the diningroom table saying "earthquake, earthquake!", but I didn't feel anything. Then, bam! I felt the jolt. No damage here, but cell and landline service are out. Obviously I still have broadband internet.

I just had a feeling to check USGS. 5.8 is one you will feel unless you are jetskiing over chop.

I knew this was going to happen today.

I have the ability to sense when a natural disaster is about to happen before it does (especially earthquakes).

I don't care who believes me, it's true.

It's not something I like because I can't "call" upon it, but I sense these things strongly before they happen.

There have been a bunch of 3.x before or after shocks but the USGS page isn't showing detail yet or it is flooded. Not much damage if any from a 5.8 but might rattle some nerves.

This is the first news report I have seen:

earthquake rocks los angeles

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A magnitude-5.8 earthquake has struck just east of Los Angeles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake's epicenter was about 2 miles southwest of Chino Hills and about 5 miles southeast of Diamond Bar, the USGS said. Chino Hills is about 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

The center was about 7.6 miles deep. In general, earthquakes centered closer to the Earth's surface produce stronger shaking and can cause more damage than those further underground.

A 5.8 magnitude quake is considered by the USGS to be "moderate," which can cause slight damage to buildings and others structures. About 500 can happen globally each year, the survey says.

CNN's Ed Lavandera was at Disneyland with his family and felt the temblor. He said the shaking lasted about 5 seconds.

The magnitude is relatively high because time is a factor in the equation, and this one had a long rolling wave to it. It wasn't a sharp shock, so it wouldn't probably cause as much damage.

Predicting factors? I generally like to watch how people are driving. If I see more accidents, or more people generally driving badly, I think about earthquakes. Maybe somehow the tension in the ground is somehow felt by people, making them more tense and distracted than usual. I thought about it last Friday, actually, because people were driving like crap. I almost posted my prediction, but didn't.

I coulda been a contenda!

Felt the earthquake here in Van Nuys (suburb of Los Angeles) a few minutes go. felt very weak for a 5.6 More of a wobbeling bouncy type of quake than a violent type of shaking associated with ones this large. The quake lasted for a while though, a long slow rolling like wave, like if you were bobbing in the ocean.

Not bad at all, I doubt that there will be any damage to the city or surrounding areas.

My dogs weren't even bothered by it, although they did act weird yesterday and
The birds weren't chirping this morning, maybe they felt it coming.

Been a while since LA had a modest quake. It's weird you can hear them coming a split second before they hit. a low familiar rumbling noise that you can't put your finger on although you know that you've head it before.

I'd say the folks are really lucky not to have experienced a quake over 6.5

I felt it in Glendale....there was one really good jolt and the rest was as stated, a nice rolling wave...

I was IMing by roommate the entire time it was going on giving here a second by second update....She was the first one in Europe to know about it, I'm sure...


If I'm doing that, then you know it was a small one...
