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?

We like those little ones because they sometimes push the drywall sheets back together that came apart in a previous one.

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. ;-)

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 :-)

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! :)

Come on folks. This is California. I'm surprised anything less than a 5.0 makes the news.

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.

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.

Cool!!

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!!

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.
