Reporting from the OC here, it was my first experience of an EQ and I almost $hit myself. Moved out to SoCal over a yr ago. So here I am sitting on
the patio approx 930 am pacific time and all of the sudden the patio starts to. Shuffle underneath my feet, never in my life have I experienced such a
thing so my immediate reaction was to just stand up out of my chair, before I knew it the ground stopped shaking within a few seconds. I was
dumbfounded. this was the first earthquak I had actually experienced while actually on the ground, the other ones I was probably (and thankfully)
either sleeping or driving while they happened and didn't notice them. I'm worried for the big one now if a few quick seconds of a tiny 4.0 freaked
me out that much this morning, yep, I'm an earthquake n00b.
