Anyone near Southern California feel the earthquake?

earthquake

Some people in the Coachella Valley (where I live) felt the earthquake today, but I didn't notice anything.

I was at home, probably watching a movie.

My sister was at the 99 Cent Store, and someone at the store mentioned it to her as it happened, but she didn't feel it either.

I used to live near Bakersfield, which is a lot closer to the epicenter.

Now I live just a few miles away from the San Andreas.  :X

(But I've been lucky enough to never be in a natural disaster.)

Any BLF members experience this one?

my son felt it, but I did not. We are both in Santa Barbara. Something fell off my cold rush machine during dinner, and my wife joked it was an aftershock.

Me neither.

Oh Yes. I’m in Australia. chuckle.

Several yrs ago.
We go to Phuket regularly. (Sailfish fishing)
We were sitting in Hotel room. 6th floor. Wife in shower.
Me watching tv.

The long wall of room with Teev on it.
Started to visibly “ripple”.
I watched the wave travel along the wall from back to front,
About 25/28 ft. then off to the next block.

Talking to staff and other residents later,
A regular occurence. At least once a month.
They have a LOT of steel reo in those longtitudal walls the manager said.
It always goes the same wavelength.
For the last 16 yrs he’s been there and before.
We still go there and enjoy.

Felt it pretty good in Santa Clarita. I’d call it a rolling smooth one, not too scary.

Agree this one was smooth, not jerky at all.
Didn’t feel any aftershocks though.

My brother is in California at the moment and he felt it, his first earth quake (he lives in Singapore, it is quiet there).

Yep. Just south of Fresno. A little shaking, nothing to be concerned about though.

Got a kick out of hearing news outlets remind everyone to make sure they stock up on flashlights.

Except that people will forget about it after 6 months or so. Most people just can’t wrap their minds around the fact that at some point there will be a devastating quake in northern/southern Calif, and that effective government response will be measured in months rather than days.

at steamer lane in Santa Cruz, CA a 30 foot long by 12” wide crack appeared in the cliff by the main parking lot, yesterday. today it was about 25% wider.

I did not feel the quake

my friend and I are taking opposing sides, he says the cliff section will drop into the water, Im betting it wont, its “solid” rock underneath right?;-)

Above.

That “solid“rock you talking about. Is just a tiny splinter on a thin cooling crust on a small fireball spinning in space. Miniscule in the way of things.

OH. None of it is SOLID Rock. Just a thin skin of several cooling plates. that are permanently on the move. Usually together.
But look out Charlie if any ever separate. WE ALL gone.

The way we treating it. It’s only a matter of time.

Have a great day hey….

I’ve been thru many and could tell it was a good one….frim 200 miles away in Oxnard.
First thing I thought about was how many batteries do I have charged.SMH

It woke my 2 kids and wife, put the news on and was surprised at how far the epicenter was….

Earthquake just now (8:23pm) in Las Vegas. Was watching the NBA summer league game, Knicks vs Pelicans. Scoreboard and speakers hanging from the ceiling swaying back and forth at Thomas & Mack arena.

I think I felt this one.

It was a rolling earthquake, but we're so far away from the epicenter, we're fine.

I guess I’m too drugged up to notice. I got a hip replacement a couple days ago. I was standing and talking on the phone to someone in town who felt it, but all I got was hearing the wind chimes make noise when there was no wind . . .

I felt both earthquakes. Normally I sleep though them or they are usually milder. I am definitely NOT prepared for the big one.

I also have not found pics online, will have to snap one tomorrow

I hope you heal fast after the hip work
and that your pain levels stay suppressed

I had mentioned just 2 days ago that the lack of wind made it feel like earthquake weather.. next day a big crack in the cliff.. stay tuned for the photo op

Hope everyone is OK, I wonder if this could be the prelude to “The Big One”? Shocked

I felt both a tiny bit over on this side of the border, the first I only noticed since some kitchen ornaments started swinging a little.
They weren’t too small either so no wonder they were felt a bit all the way down here.

All clear here of course. Thought we did have one, fairly close; I felt several years ago. Very strange feeling in this part of the country… Shocked

Thanks Jon, so far so good. As of today I’m planning to ditch the walker, and use a cane or hiking poles only. Still taking the narcotics, but hoping to ditch those in a few days.

Looking forward to the picture!
