Felt a shake and heard a big creak/rattle at our house in Torrance. Anybody else feel it?
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.

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!

Funny you mentioned that. I have not lived in california since 1963 and I STILL don’t consider anything less than a 5 to be newsworthy, and even then only if it happens somewhere where there normally are no earthquakes.

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
Well I have lived in So. Cal my whole life,(been through San Fernando, Whittier, Northridge, Landers) enough to know that some quakes build in intensity. I take them all seriously until the ground stops shaking.

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.
