Hope it's not serious.

Looks like it was in Mexico.

Definitely strong enough to do damage.

Central valley of California is a rift valley. Eventually, the Baja peninsula and a good portion (some would say the BAD PORTION!) of coastal California will be an island offshore of Washington state!

A moderate earthquake occurred at 11:12:07 PM (PST) on Friday, February 8, 2008. The magnitude 5.4 event occurred 26 km (16 miles) NW of Guadalupe Victoria, Baja California, Mexico. The hypocentral depth is 7 km ( 4 miles).

Probably just an illegal alien/drug smuggling tunnel collapsing.

Well luckily there will not be a death toll as all the residents are north of the border. J/K

You mean like a pre quake to something bigger?

Should know JMO in about 2hrs when the first aftershock comes or the bigger quake hits.

Gonna hope/bet on an after shock.

Compared to California North of Pendleton, this area is rather seismically quiet.

Didn't feel it here, either.

The ground shook yesterday morning, but I don't think it was an earthquake. ;-)

LOL, the weed killer wore off. I’m still waiting for it to have an effect on the weeds. Didn’t feel this quake, I guess I was walking around or something.

"we been having a swarm of little ones"

Never felt one in my life. I'll trade you. 4 inches of ice and snow for a swarm of little ones.

I hate this 12 degree weather stuff. I'm definately moving somewhere next year if the good Lord let's me.

Shure hope all Freepers are OK.

I'm in So. Cal...Didn't feel a thing...And no, I won't trade you a few shakers for frigid cold. I hate cold. I get mean when it's cold. So no trade.

Good luck on moving to a warmer spot. lol

BTW, it was about 75 degrees, clear and sunny in S. Cal today.
