That's the one I felt, I was in Canoga Park (LA) at the time. Cracked the walls of the apartment building. Scary.

I thought someone was trying to break in my front door because it was creaking. Took a second to register it was an earthquake and by then it was over. All of about 5 seconds. Thought it would have felt more violent at 5.0?

I was going to the Giants/A's world series game....in the park it didn't feel as bad as Northridge quake........SF was 7.1 and Northridge 6.7 ...I think measuring it at 6.7 was a joke...should have been higher

I'm just curious to you guys in socal. Have you ever been riding when one hit? What the hell was it like? I can only imagine it being like wedging your bike inbetween 4 washers on a really ****ing uneven rinse cycle while Michael J. Fox tried to adjust your front and rear shock at the same time.

Ya know...like this...................kinda...

What??????????



I assumed it was smaller. The most recent one I felt this summer was mid-day on a workday and was something like 4.0 and felt WAY harsher and lasted longer than that one, and was pretty close to the same distance..

Crazy stuff. The most intense earthquake I experienced was while i was stationed in Guam. We had a 7.2 that hit around midnight, I was sitting in my lazy-boy playing some video games. That som-***** scared the hell out of me. It felt like I was on a boat in the rapids. Everything on my walls fell off, plates and glasses fell out of my cabinets, just plain nutts. I am a South Dakota native, so earthquakes are mondo-bizzaro to me! I will stick to my tornados and blizzards. Much respect to you Cali fellas who take these things in stride. A little too freaky in my book.
