    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.
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    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.

    I live in the Norco/Corona area, but only felt the bigger one. Never felt any of the prior/aftershocks. Nothing fell, but the ceiling fan swayed. (Probably 15-20 miles from center.) It sure was a long one! We debated whether we should get to a doorway or just stay in bed. Just about that time it ended.

    Was the older "Lady Seismologist" they interviewed the same one who used to bring her kids to the briefings?

    RUN, you silly girl!! Don't get squashed!

    I'm telling you, I've been following these quakes because I'm on the email contact list for the USGeologicalSurvey site, and I'm SO wishing my daughter and grandson would get the heck outta the LA area and move here or to Colorado for her to teach. Makes me crazy! That and tornados -- years in Texas in the spring/summer. Ugh.

    Now I gotta worry about you too?? Grief.

    I live in north Orange County and yes, I felt the 5.3 earthquake as well as several of the aftershocks. According to the news, the 5.3 was actually an aftershock!!!

    I'm as prepared as I can be.

    My husband and I did not feel the quakes but our daughter that lives in El Cajon did. She is in a 2 story condo and it shook her. But we are in a single story house.

    Another 4.5 just hit about 20 min ago. Wasn't sure if I was just dizzy or if it was a quake. Had to look it up to see.

    The epicenter was a block from my daughter's home. My poor 2 3/4 yo grandson has been terrified all day. he was up all night and felt every aftershock. apparently several things fell from his closet shelves. Their bedrooms are on the second floor and so they feel the shaking more up there. Poor Isaac won't even go into his room!

    I know all of you Californians are used to earthquakes...or maybe not. Every time I have traveled to southern California....about 9-10 times, I have felt tremors....still earthquakes. The first time in a hotel, things vibrated on the end table next to my bed. Another time I was walking on the beach...the birds were flying all around and I felt pressure in the air...sounds silly...but a passerby said that was a little one........The other time, I was actually talking with John Wayne and his nurse, walking in the secluded small community in Newport Beach. He too, said "small disturbance". Being from Texas, I will never get used to the earth shuttering....now we are having them in North Texas. Everyone here is blaming them on the natural gas well drilling. The shale is very porous and layered in thin layers. When they take out the oil and gas, the layers shift...so they say. We have had several tremors over 4.0 in the last year. Nothing we can do about them...just hope we don't have any caverns that open up. I would be more concerned of sink holes as in Florida than the earth just shuttering..My prayers are with all of our California friends.

    California really had their share of earthquakes this week!!!! Now Oklahoma is getting them!!!!!!
    I live in Oregon at the base of a volcano (the youngest in Oregon -- which means it was the last one to blow in Oregon)......and I feel safer than I would in California!!!!!!!!

    Yep, felt it in Claremont/Pomona area. Only one pic fell from a shelf. But it was quite a jolt. Felt a smaller one after that.

    In the past 14 hours we've had 13 earthquakes with 8 at 3.5 or higher, 4 at or above 4.0 with the largest at 4.4 in Oklahoma. Fun...... They are slowly getting stronger.

    in January I added earthquake insurance to my homeowners policy.
