I hear there was a small earthquake but haven't heard much else.
6.0, 5.9, something like that.
Felt it only slightly here in L.A. It was centered in central California. Paso Robles...which I think got hit a year or two back. Hope that town is ok.
Really? Didn't feel a damn thing...
Dennis Nicholls said he felt it up in the boondocks. I didn't feel a thing.
Felt nothing here in SF.
weird, must have been way out there then?
Epicentered near Parkfield, 2 of them, 6.0 and 5.9. 70 or so miles NNE of San Luis Obispo, so in a relatively low-population area of CA. Reports had it felt in the bay area and Santa Ana. Here in West LA, nada. The Scott Peterson trial was recessed early because of it.
man, earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanos... all make me glad I live in colorado
Felt nothing here in HB.
People in Colorado will die sooner due to cancer caused by increased cosmic ray exposure.
The good thing about earthquakes is that they usually don't occur during periods of bad weather. Whereas there's an amazing correlation between hurricanes and periods of bad weather.
At work in Santa Clara I noticed a time separation between the P waves and the S waves, so I knew it was a long way away. Normally I don't pay any attention to small shakes but this seemed to be a much bigger quake far away. Parkfield is about 130 miles south of here.
I was really wondering if it was Mt. Saint Helens blowing up again.

I am also in Huntington Beach, but haven't felt a damned thing. One of these days a huge earthquake is gonna kill me -- I sleep through every one of 'em (ones that were at least felt significantly in my area at the time).
Didn't feel a thing. I frequent quite a few forums and it is funny reading non-californians reactions to earthquakes.
Brian, where in HB are ya?
Felt nothing in Cypress. And Colorado has tornadoes.
EWWWW Robert, what are you doing in Cypress?
I work here. It's pretty nice, actually.
Not really, not around here anyway. Out east maybe...
I stood outside my mom's house in Denver one summer (she lives by the old Park Hill Golf Course), and watched a BIG funnel cloud spiral downward a few miles east. It touched down in Denver. Others have touched down in places like Lakewood, Broomfield, and Arvada. Close enough.
Cypress was built like last week, of course it's "nice."
I commute to the similar, Brea on some days. I much prefer working in Little Saigon(Midway).
I mooch off Orange County, then go home.
[Not to imply all of O.C. is bad. I like parts of H.B., Fullerton, Santa Ana and Old Town Orange. At least some character in some of the older areas.]
Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes... What a year! The insurance companies are going to have a fit!
