Just an itty-bitty temblor. Probably hardly anybody at all felt it!
How did anyone even know?

If it was worse, think of all the falling glass that could harm people and property.

Upgraded to 3.8 felt it good shaker but thats probably because Im not too far away from the epicenter..funny thing is my sister lives 10 min away didnt feel a thing
We felt it in Simi Valley, a good 15 miles away.

I was in my bed watching TV so I think when your lying in bed it feels stronger than what it actually is. 3.8 is actually quite small, but I knew the moment I felt it that it was somewhere close..just a few days ago there was one in Palos Verdes but I didnt feel it
I am certain it was caused by a lack of fracking in the area.

Lacking fracking is a serious ordeal.

I knew it had to be larger..cause that did NOT feel like a 3.8
We are in BH and it rumbled and went on a little. I was saying it was a 4.

Maybe the Man Upstairs is expressing his displeasure at UCLA for choosing Jane Fonda as its commencement speaker.
“How did anyone even know?”
I found out about it on FR:)
We felt it here in Santa Monica as a noticeable jolt, albeit of very short duration.

This “Dutchsinse” guy has accurately predicted a good number of quakes, including the M9 in Japan a couple of years ago and has an interesting system for keeping track of them.
If he says to hang on tight in your area, I’d suggest you clear the decks of anything breakable and be prepared for interesting times.

What idiot crafted that bit of wisdom?
What does an EQ on the surface feel like?

Depth now placed at 4.4km — whatever that means.

Now I feel better. I thought it felt bigger than what they were saying, and thought I was just being a baby. :-D
