Earthquake

Recommended Posts

Just had a 7.1 earthquake here in the Los Angeles area. It lasted a good 40 seconds or so. Rolling for a long time. It was larger than yesterday’s quake. As far as I know there was no damage to.my house. I was not home when it happened . Welcome to California 😱

Ditto!  California is definitely an "adventure" zone these days.  Hope your leg is now up to speed as well.

Last nights shaker (epicenter near Ridgecrest, 125 miles from L.A.) was felt over a huge area.  My home is just outside Phoenix, about 350 miles from the epicenter.  Two grandfather clocks in the house completely stopped three minutes after the quake hit Ridgecrest.  Water in the pool sloshed and wall decorations rattled.  My two Pekingese dogs began running around barking at something unseen but certainly felt. 

 

Still, this wasn't 'The Big One' that's long overdue.  If/when a 7.1 quake is centered in L.A. the damage will be on a massive scale.

I felt it up in Sacramento! Water in our pool sloshed around too.

Try and prep best as you can, que sera sera is always the rule of the day, but I hope no one gets sucked into these events.
