L.A. Earthquake

Just felt a bump like someone hit my chair. Then the wife came out of a downstairs room and asked if I felt something.

Nothing on USGS yet.

2.8 off the coast at 4:35....that'd be hard to feel, but who knows.

Aren’t earthquakes in LA common? If it’s not at least the magnitude of the Northridge quake, it’s not news.

A 2.8 certainly isn’t news. Even A-cup chicks cause bigger EQs than that.

Unless it is 2012 movie sized EQ, nothing will save this state.

Bummer.

The mods moved this from Breaking News.

Downgraded it to Chat.

(Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.)

You were saying ...

No wonder...it was just a few miles away.

I remember when Mt. St. Helens was rumbling and before it went off, I could be sitting down in a chair and I could feel some of the 2s and 3s from there ... If you were standing up and/or moving around you would miss it.

It was about 50 miles away from me in Portland.

There was another time that there was an earthquake in the Seattle area (or thereabouts) and in Portland, I was in a mult-story building and I was sitting down at the time (there was a cat there, too, believe it or not) and it jumped up and got scared, and then I saw the ight fixture swaying back and forth. I could almost feel the building swaying slightly, too ... a gentle kind of rocking ... :-)

I’ve lived in San Pedro for 13 years. Any quake I’ve felt here has been much more intense in another part of SoCal. One actually centered in this area is SIGNIFICANT, no matter how small.

I was only 10 miles from the epicenter of the Northridge quake. One of the most destructive earthquakes in the last century was 1933 in Long Beach, just across the harbor.

True story. Many years ago while a college student, I was in the large university library at a seminar when I felt a slight jiggle. Right about then two very hefty people walked into the room so I didn’t think anything of it. When I got back to my apartment my roommates asked me if I felt the earthquake. I can be very obtuse sometimes.

2.8? That's equivalent to a souffle collapse.

Sure it wasn’t her?

A more likely explanation since I can't see any quake that would register a bump.

You know, a long time ago I had a Soap on a Rope. Then I got a radio for the shower and thought that was pretty cool.

Now I find it is possible to post to FR while taking a shower. Got to get one of those. What do they call it, Computer on a Roper or a Shower Computer?

If you are a native Californian, you may feel them but you don't sweat them until your bed starts moving across the room or you are suddenly seasick from the rolling motion. Nothing is more disconcerting than feeling solid earth becoming liquid.

I was on the 7th floor of a hotel.

People on the ground felt nothing.
