Default Did anyone feel the earth move last night?? 3/28

There have been two earthquakes mentioned on CNN this past week. I live near Temecula, just north of San Diego. I was surprised that I felt the second quake that happened last night since I didn't feel the first one. I did wonder what I should do as I laid in bed since I am on the 1st floor of a two story apartment. YIKES !!

Nothing as far north as southern BC.

But on the news yesterday they were talking about it being the 50th anniversary of a Tsunami hitting the West Coast of Vancouver Island after a 9.2 Earthquake.

Friend of mine on FB felt it 5 times. Really don't want to live anywhere that the earth beneath me is going to move. That includes sinkholes. I'll stay where I'm at unless I get to move back to Indiana.

We are in an RV resort in Palm Springs and felt it! We're next to the San Andreas fault as well. I thought it would shake our trailer off the stabilizers.

We live practically on top of where the earthquake epicenter was. We are currently in AZ so didn't feel it. Our daughter is going over to check on the house today. The neighbor said things fell off and jumped around in his house.

I live about five miles away from the epicenter.... 5.1 magnitude earthquake opened my curio cabinet door and broke most of my ceramic figurines (Lladros & Hummels) and the glass on the cabinet door. I am hoping that the 5.1 was THE earthquake (main shock) and not the foreshock. I'm used to the earthquakes but I get the jitters every time I feel the aftershocks. Well, I'll go back to my sewing room and keep trying to organize my fabrics!

Welcome to the board susanyy !! The last quake I remember was the Yorba Linda quake a few years ago. I lived on the west end of Corona and boy did items fly. I grabbed both the TV and my flat screen monitor to keep them from flying. That was the closest I have ever been to the center of a quake. I can tell you where I was for the San Fernando Quake in 1970 and all the other quakes in Whittier and Big Bear. You do panic for the first few seconds but nothing is as scary as a wildfire. the Tri-state fire started about a mile east of my home with the terrible Santa Ana winds blowing. The first I was aware was the noise that the heavy helicopters make that drop the bucket of water on a fire. Fortunately, no one had any damage in my community I lived but it was scary since to evacuate would have been impossible !!

We felt it in Escondido. My husband and I were sitting together, watching TV. I thought his Restless Leg Syndrome had suddenly gotten worse! Then realized it wasn't him at all. It seemed to go on for quite some time.
