    SoCal Guys - Didja Feel That One?

    We just had what the US Geological Survey is calling "Event 14383980". It's tentatively labeled as a magnitude 5.6 shaker.

    http://pasadena.wr.usgs.gov/shake/ca...m_display.html

    I most definitely felt it. It was long enough duration for me to gather up the dogs and go outside, and it was still shaking when we got out there. This is the strongest one I've felt since the Northridge quake. No damage here at the house.

    Anybody else feel this one?

    "Little' shakers like that make me glad to have moved out of SoCal a few years ago. Now, let's talk about tornadoes...

    Good to hear your OK. Any damage on the homestead?

    Not even a flinch up here - thankfully.

    So far, i've avoided the experience - been here since '99 and haven't had the pleasure yet. They're pretty rare around these parts, but a half hour westward is a whole 'nother story!

    They're now calling it a 5.4, epicenter in Chino Hills: I'm maybe 7-8 miles south as the crow flies. Glad I don't live in Brea.

    Only thing broken was the natural-edge bowl by Mark Cothren that I bought in SMCs charity auction awhile back. Couple pieces of bark edge broke off, but should be fixable assuming I can find all the chunks.

    Bunch of stuff came off shelves and a bunch of books tipped over, shower doors got shaken off the tracks...already fixed. I've still got gas, water, cable, and electricity, so everything must have moved as one big chunk here.

    This one shook the house north-south, which I don't ever remember happening before. Only lasted about 10 seconds here though.

    I think he's okay - he posted on SMC about the shaker a few minutes ago.

    Vaughn,

    Glad you are OK. Hope you weren't turning at the time! A 5.6 is a good way to blow a bowl blank out!
