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

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.

Maybe the Man Upstairs is expressing his displeasure at UCLA for choosing Jane Fonda as its commencement speaker.

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.

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
