Well I was in Baja California , Mexico (Tijuana area) when the quake hit. We had just left a local Walmart. I was sitting in our truck and hubby was standing right outside the truck smoking. I was on the phone with my daughter (she lives in Chula Vista area) and she was yelling get in the doorway to her roommates, and I was busy watching all the people panic and run out of the store and the cars next to me shaking alot. There really wasn't much damage here, but we have watched the Mexican news and I guess Mexicali got hit pretty good with some damage and 2 dead. I felt one of the aftershocks about
an hour later. We are fine, our Mexican house is fine.
I am a native southern Californian and like CrazyHarry am pretty used to them. But boy do some people freak out. I will admit I am glad I wasn't at work. I work on the 18th floor in downtown San Diego, and the last earthquake really rocked the building. But we felt it more because our building is on rollers just for earthquake safety and the rollers intensify it some.
