YORBA LINDA (CBS) An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.1 struck in Orange County Wednesday night.
The temblor was centered two miles north of Yorba Linda at 8:17 p.m., according to the USGS.
The quake was felt as far away as Long Beach and the Inland Empire
Good evening to all you FReepers down there behind the Orange Curtain.
OK Dog lovers....
My dog went CRAZY SCARED this afternoon over nothing that we could see. It would’ve been about 3 hours prior to this quake. She’s pretty much calm now...
Is it a coincidence or...can they tell that far in advance?
4.1? Well from what get from most ‘Kalifornians’ that’s just another day in paradise. ;-)
Hmmmmm, I don’t live all that far from there and I did not feel a thing here in Cypress.
We like those little ones because they sometimes push the drywall sheets back together that came apart in a previous one.
Nothing felt in Irvine either (15 miles south of YL).
good jolt here in Fullerton
I just figured you liked them because if you timed it right you don’t have to run the blender to make your favorite adult beverage. ;-)
Nixon Library in Yorba Linda.
We felt it in Murrieta. Just a little gentle swaying and some window rattling.
Maybe Nixon just found out who’s in the Oval Office?
3 small after shocks 2.1 and 1.5
I felt it here in LA county. A quick sharp jolt.
4.1 - a hiccup
Naaaaaa........that would’ve been a 9.3, complete with tsunami.
Interesting. I just ran a quick computer query and learned that in about 350 BC in Greece, dogs particularly along with other animals behaved frantically three days before a massive earthquake hit. The article followed up saying that dogs have very sensitive auditory systems and can pick up frequencies we humans miss.
I love dogs :-)
Expected. It is the Earthquake Season in Southern Cal. It comes before the Fire Season.
NO wonder the place's cursed.
Boy, MY dog is slow, then...
Actually, we’re the dumb animals.
THAT is a given.
Well then, I'll be. I expected the quake to hit real soon...not hours later!!! That dog needs a bone, or something! :)
Me as well ... felt nothing.
I felt it in La Habra, Calif.
Give her a raw bloody steak...don’t be such a skinflint.
If I had one, I think I would. That poor kid...she wanted to crawl into our skin this afternoon.
Didn’t feel a thing here in the I.E. , pass area. 4.1, not too much to write home about. Just hope it’s not a precursor.
After living in Alaska for seven years, if things are not tumbling down, tis no big deal.
1969-76 we lived in rural AK, one could hear the quakes rumbling a few seconds before they hit. We had no TV, so evenings were pretty quite with most all reading. When first heard in the winter, kids would start betting if it was a quake or a snow slide on the mountain. (the slides often got pretty loud and jarring)
Miss all still miss those times in AK.
Mine want to “attack” loud noises...which is kinda pointless, if ya think about it.
I almost wish she was like that, instead. I really REALLY want my fearless dog back...
Orange, CA - BANG, like someone bumping into the desk, then a pause, followed by a decent shake for maybe 5 seconds. One of those where you have time to wonder how big it’ll get. Not enough to get the chandeliers swinging, however.
Go report it. Pleeeeeeeeze?
Just put in your zip code, not the whole address, unless you want the peeps watching you. :)
Felt it in theater in Huntington Beach, named ironically “Bella Terra.”
I even did one for my DOG who sensed it hours before it struck.
“Someone” will probably be shaking their head in wonder over THAT report!!
My post #36.
Go report it. :)
She’s been through a lot.
Try and give her some time.
[and DO NOT “comfort” her when she’s panicky...that only reinforces her belief that something is, indeed, “wrong”]
Years ago I read about a guy who predicted quakes by looking at the newspaper ads for lost dogs. Apparently, shortly before a quake, there is an increase in pets running away from home. Somehow they sense a quake is coming and freak out. Like I said, this was years ago...don’t know if it’s been proven or not.
