AP/YahooNews ^ | 6/15/10

Posted on 06/14/2010 9:55:09 PM PDT by Kartographer

An earthquake has rocked Southern California, shaking the Los Angeles area and forcing a halt to the Toronto Blue Jays-San Diego Padres game in San Diego.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-5.7 quake was centered five miles southeast of Ocotillo near the U.S.-Mexico border. It struck Monday at about 9:30 PDT.

The quake was initially reported as a magnitude-5.9 temblor.

Did not feel a thing, thank goodness. Quakes scare the hell outta me. Weird how I did not feel it here(In West LA) but people in Northridge felt it..I guess it just depends on where you live

Eighteen aftershocks.

This event was supposedly an aftershock from the 7.2 quake on April 4.

We lived through the ‘94 quake just a handful of miles from the epicenter. Ever after that, when one would happen at night (the ‘94 one was early, still dark on that January morning) I would awaken with my heart racing. I know a few people died of heart attacks from the ‘94 quake. Hope everyone in the San Diego area is ok!

Good God!

I didn’t feel, but I know I will be up the next 30 watching the devastation on TV. Please pray for me!

There isn’t anything even in Brawley.

I’ve never figured out which is worse — west coast quakes or midwest tornadoes.

Both are no fun.

Will any CA FReepers please leave CA immediately.

You aren't appreciated there anyway, and you're just holding up Judgment.

2 killer quakes coming up, 1 of them probably USA west coast within 45 days.

aftershock...radio reported a large aftershock showing on the seismograph as it happened, and was waiting to feel it in LA.

I didn’t feel anything.

Shook a little here. Floor lamp shook but was not close to falling over. Felt rattle in house with slight noise. Felt the ground moving but not a lot. No trouble standing or walking. Nothing fell off of a shelf.

Tornados and thunderstorms are definately worse. Lived through both.

My earthquake software program shows the earthquake and dozens of aftershocks, not one.

Come on up the coast from CA, to Washington. We get earthquakes and tornadoes and hurricanes (we call them ‘storms’) but really shine with VOLCANOES. Nothing like have 1200 feet blow off the top of a mountain to make you feel good!

You can evade or take shelter from a tornado... You cannot escape a quake. I’ll take my chances with Dorothy and Toto.

It was also felt at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, but it wasn’t bad enough to scare people or stop the game - Angels vs Brewers.

I live in San Diego and used to go riding a three wheeler in that area of the desert quake. Then the BLM made most of it a wildness preserve around there and the nearby mountains. I guess so the illegals could die in peace during summer heat while crossing into the US.

The border patrol has done more damage in a protected wilderness area with their constant patrolling of the known ‘immigration’ paths and roads and by dragging a chain link fence to smooth the dirt and sand to observe foot prints and tire tracks. I hike the area occasionally now in the cooler months and the area is a disaster more than it ever was when it wasn’t wilderness area i.e. foot paths, more dirt roads, trash, water stations setup for illegals, catus/plants rolled over by the chain link dragging.....sad really.

I was in Toluca Lake in ‘94. The problem is they start about the same, and you don't know how bad they're going to be until they start subsiding, so you get that same ‘startle’ response every time. I'm in north San Diego County now, and we got a pretty good shake, pretty much the same as the Calexico quake felt here. Waiting for the adrenalin to drain out now.

Well it isn't very scary if I say "won't".

And it's impolite if I say "hope".

Over in Fullerton and felt it over here. Not as bad as some of the quakes I felt in Japan. It was one of those shake back and forth ones.

It was at 4:31 AM as I recall. Strongest earthquake I've ever felt and I've been here in L.A. now for 38 years. The bookcase next to my bed was banging hard against the wall and books were flying out of it. The June, 1992 Landers quake was also early in the morning before dawn, at about 5 AM. Scary indeed to be awakened from a sound sleep by a powerful earthquake.

What’s worse, you never know when an earthquake is coming.

That's why I am forever grateful that I got lucky enough to have one come during the one time I was in Las Vegas. (Sadly, at first I thought it was just a couple having fun next door in the Motel 6, but I woke up enough in time to enjoy some of it.)

I doubt I'll get to ever experience a volcano, though. :-(
