    I live about 7-10 miles from the epicenter - on the slope of the mountains to the northeast. It began with 3-5 seconds of mild rolling followed by 3-5 seconds of a hard snap and shake. All of the hanging lamps and decor in my home swayed north to south. No damage at my home or property.

      My station is on top of the Whittier Narrows fault....man I was glad to find out it was not under my chair, but it did get me to move quicker than I have in a couple years. No damage, and no injuries. But the 5150's sure are coming outta the woodwork....

        I was sitting in a movie theater when it happened. The place shook pretty good. Only about 3 or 4 people got up and walked out. Guess most of us are used to it by now...

          In CA, if it's not 6.0 or above, it's not worth worrying about!

                +1.....after going through the Northridge quake in '94 (and living around 4 miles from that epicenter), which had NUMEROUS 5+ aftershocks, I dont get that excited over anything under a 6 anymore......

                      I was five years old when that quake hit, I was very scared. And then the after shocks the days that followed. I remember seeing some bridges that were collapsed due to that quake and two buildings that use to be like this || but ended up like this / \ good thing they didn't go this way \ /.


                      Question, is there an earthquake LE department?
