I remember being in Taiwan and feeling my first. I was in a 12 story building on the 11th floor and it just felt like my reality was slipping sideways is the best way I can describe it.

I felt nauseous and strangely peaceful at the same time.

Strange.

That was a 5.5

Peace

I just moved to Arroyo Grande, California (15 minutes north of Santa Maria) like 14 months ago. This is the first EQ I've experienced. It was really cool, and unexpected. At first my fiancee thought that I was somehow magically moving the TV, couch and coffee table simultaneously with one foot. Then I looked up to see my bottle of water shifting back and forth on my speaker.

I'm 95 miles south from the epicenter, and i still felt it pretty strongly. Is it normal to get a little dizzy when they hit?

Dizziness was probably part due to the adrenaline and part due to the motion sickness. After all, the entire land mass you were sitting on was moving back and forth

Been in a 5.3... I heard this weird noise in the neighborhood, then it shook my house, the bed I was laying on, and the garage door. Nothing broke, but it wasn't a minor quake... that's for sure.

I have some questions to put out there: Isn't the duration of the quake a factor as well? And why doesn't the MSM report this? A 10 sec M5.3 is much different than a 1 minute M5.3.... Or am I missing something obvious here?

Meteors cause earthquakes? I never heard of such a thing.

Anyways, is 5.3 a particularly large quake for that area? Just doesn't seem that worrisome to me.


Never heard of the idea of meteor slamming into the earth and registering a magnitude either have ya ?
Well I wouldn't be worried if it were both an eathquake and a meteor.

So nah !


You think if a meteor hit hard enough to cause a worrisome earthquake, then the effects of the meteor wouldn't be hard to find.

That idea just sounds a little too far-fetched to be accurate. Btw I wasn't being sarcastic, I was serious, I had never heard of that.

Its duration, type of quake(rolling ones are not as bad as ones that snap), magnitute etc...

A 4.2 pointer 30 miles away made my fridge jump two feet but
I slept through a 5 pointer I was on top of
been through a few 7+'s too. The last one was the most freaky, hiding under a cheap oak table I could hear the wood beams in the house groan loudly as the home was bent back and forth

I thought my wife was pushing the bed with her foot while I was lying on it reading a book. When I turned around and looked at her, she was looking at me all weird and we looked at the stuff on our dresser and it was shaking around pretty good. We didn't feel it for very long, maybe ten seconds at the most. I live about 2 hours away from King City, which was either the epicenter or close to it.

I lived in Chino Hills for a couple years when I was around 8-9 y/o. There were 4.0s all the way up to the 6.8 Northridge quake in '94


California didn't slide in to the Pacific then and it won't now


For what it's worth, almost my entire family still lives between L.A. and Semi Valley with the remainder in the Bay area. Of Course California isn't slipping into the Pacific Ocean. If that happened...the global cataclysm in progress to cause it won't leave anyone time to care about any one state's fate unless we live there anyway.

However, I do appreciate the OP reporting this, even as a small one by Cali standards. The WHOLE Ring Of Fire has been waking up for over a year as many have sat to watch happen. Anything in that line is something to notice.

Besides....... Growing up there, sliding into the Pacific was the LAST of my problems for "The Big One". I was a WHOLE lot more concerned about escaping Los Angeles when.....if you think about this real hard for a sec....it's a geographically ISOLATED place when unbroken pavement to drive on is a requirement. You have I-10, I-15 and I-5. 2 with mountain passes and all three with enough overpasses to fall in place to make driving a far distant memory for weeks or months.

Nice to have a fortune teller in our midst.

Every disaster in history has had the same naysayers. Those are usually the ones that perish because they just knew more than everyone else...without proof.

Peace


Nice to have meaningless threads about minor earthquakes in California cluttering the new topics page too

B-B-But...I didn't put it on the front page.

Members who apparently DON'T think it's meaningless put it there.

All threads make the new topics for being new... Sorry to burst your bubble.

But I gotta go, it rained in Wyoming today and we'll need a thread

Oh...Jeez I haven't been around long enough to know this. Thanks!


And the other members that found this worthwhile enough to comment and flag to KEEP it on the front page should be made aware of how everything works as well.

Teach on!


But...Have you been around long enough to know that if you don't like a thread you can hit ctrl R or F5 or even just your back key to ease out of it? You are then free to go off in search of things that actually interest you.

Just wondering.

Peace

I don't know why you're throwing sarcasm into an obviously non productive exchange such as this ? But for you to presume that's what I was thinking, isn't just inaccurate, but a fallacy of text you may want to consider in the future.

How about sound can it cause an earthquake and have you ever heard of it before ?

Nothing here in Escondido! I pray that im not stuck in traffic when a big one hits. Any one remember the Oakland Ridge earthquake and the freeways collapsing? Thats an image i hope to never experience!

Yawn. Unfortunately, I am to far a way from the epicenter to have felt it, it would have been fun though. I love the feeling.
Yes, this is a minor earthquake. A nice 6 pointer in my area would be nice. We are over due. Haven't had a good shaker in a while.

It was a decent little shaker, to put it in a locational context,
The following pics were taken a few years ago very near the epicenter.
The referenced town of new idra is about 1/2,mile down that road

This next one is very near where the epicenter maybe within a couple miles

This last one is looking towards Coalinga, Coalinga was flattened in 1983 by a 6.7? along the same section of fault, the ridge in the background went up half a meter during that quake.

And for the people who think the weekends quakes were insignificant, historically when this central section of the san andreas system there are larger quakes within a short period on other sections of the faul.

Ive been through a few already, this one didnt even make the pool slosh so no worries. Even had one that moved the house just right enough to roll my sausage back and forth in the pan perfectly back in the 80s. ;-)
