I am in San Diego and we just felt the LA Quake that just happened.  What a ride!!  I had been thru other quakes, but I still don't like them.

I was right about at the epicenter. Pretty strong one. Crazy! We just had some things fall over expecially upstairs. It probably felt strong because it we are so close. A 5.4 isn't actually too big in eatthquake terms. Glad no one seems to have been injured.

Yeah I was on the 18th floor of our building and it shook us pretty good, but no damages or injuries that I have heard of. I thought at first it was one of my brokers who walks really hard, but he stopped walking and the shaking kept going on. I hate them cuz they always make me feel dizzy. Weird huh?

Not weird at all. I've been through a 5.5 quake - it's really disconcerting having all those things swaying around you.

Did you hear the quake as well as feel it? I heard ours, but apparently I was unusual.

I'm glad you're ok, Nanners! Stay safe there.

No at least here in San Diego it was just a rolling one. The sounds I did hear was just some glass around my desk area rattling a little. I was more worried about the folks closer to the epicenter. When we feel them down here they are usually bad for LA, but I think we got lucky this time. Thank you Lord!

My husband is on a train right now going West and I e-mailed him to let him know about this. He is going there to help my daughter move from the Bay area to the desert.

He said the flooding in the midwest is unbelievable. The train is crawling past water as close as 3 feet from the track.

hehe I'm from the Bay Area, and was 12 years old when the 1989 one hit. Crazy stuff. I moved to Nevada, and hoped I got away from those buggers. We had a swarm of them over several months this year. Some nice sized ones too. Can't get away from them! Glad no damage was done down there, too close to my Disneyland darn it! ;)
