A magnitude-3.9 earthquake has struck six miles south of Rancho Palos Verdes and seven miles southwest of San Pedro, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Also, I have trouble with the rearranged usgs earthquake site, which doesn't seem to show the information as effectively as it used to. What is your favorite earthquake link?
There was a 3.0 near the airport a few days ago. Didn’t notice this one tho.
nothing here, we’re 400 miles north, fingers crossed.
Anyone who’s lived in California their whole life probably would barely notice a 3.9 quake. I personally don’t feel anything below a five!

I actually managed to sleep through the Northridge quake in 1994. Although I have to admit alcohol was a factor in that. :)
You slept through Northridge..WOW you must be a sound sleeper :-) I live on the Westside and felt that one badly..didn’t have power for two days..the one that hit today, didn’t feel it at all..of course Im not that close it would take a pretty sizable one for me to feel it
I got pretty drunk the night before, which probably helped. I still remember my mom calling me the morning of the quake asking me if I was okay. I was still in bed when she called and of course I hadn’t seen the news, so I responded with something like, “Um, yeah... why?”
LOL being drunk does help..I dont mind quakes when they happen during the day but damn when they happen in the middle of the night it makes it even more scary
The Big One is coming. Maybe not until 2050. Maybe tonight.
Either way, Be Prepared.
