We just had a major Quake in So. Calif. Nice one to , about a 7 on scale I'd say.
Roller to be sure. Shook my house for about 45 secs. I'm in Apple Valley ca.

Decided since there are already two other threads on the quake I would change this one A little.

Give me your earthquake story.
Give a few facts that can be checked for truth. That's how we'll keep it real to some extent. K?

Hi Randy, fellow Apple Valley'ian here.

It was a 5.9, or at least thats what usgs is saying.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

P.S. I wouldn't say major, well at least this wasn't major for So Cal, pretty normal, but had that circular motion like the last one.

Yes , To be sure except for a nice little jolt in there, it was exactly like the one that occurred on Easter Sunday last. That's Why I guessed at it being a 7.


Memory Shock

Well then that makes it a really nice one. Our second shot across the bow though. Funny thing I knew the instant it was over on Easter there would be no damage. This one I thought there might be. Even though the lesser.


Good to go here but it did shake awhile. I started typing before it was over.

I felt this one, you just wait and see if it's the big one, but thankfully it wasn't..

You're right about the jolt in there, plus, maybe its just me, but it seemed kinda like the ground swayed further than usual, almost made me lose my balance, lol.

Unfortunately, I had just stood up as the earthquake started, so it took me a good 10-20 seconds to realize that it was an EQ, not me being dizzy from standing up to fast

That's funny. I was sitting here and immediatly started fumbling around trying to beat everyone to the punch.
Yelling to the wife honey we're hav'in a good one. Finally got enough focus to find the right thread and started stutter typing while it was still engaged. What a crack up if you people would have been able to see.

Good news we avoided catastrophe again. That would just about sink the boat here in Cali.

Yes and you are also right about the circular swaying being more drawn out. You might say. Very cool . Hope that's it for awhile.

I am watching the USGS/cal tech news conference on the earthquake.

The funny part was when a reporter ask if there was a chance of a tsunami from this quake.

tsunami????? Where Lake Elsinore. Salton Sea.

Oh I can imagine alright, little nervy huh? First thought - computer, lol. When I lived in LA I felt a good one and the first thing I did was head to the wobbling 5 gal. glass water container to keep it from crashing to the floor. I was hugging the stupid thing - now that was dumb on my part!

All kidding aside glad is was not a big quake.
