Hey, stop shaking my house!

I felt a quake a few minutes ago here in Los Angeles. Preliminary reports put the magnitude in the mere 4s.

I barely felt it and thought it was just my imagination. Hope it's not a foreshock. *gasp!*

We had an earthquake about 7 minutes ago. The first report I saw rated it as a 3.5 centered in Beverly Hills. it was a little after midnight so it no doubt woke up quite a few people.

Today's earthquake was magnitude 4.4, at 6:25am, centered near Encino California. We felt a couple of violent shakes.

An interesting start to St. Patrick's Day!

I lived in the second hardest hit area during the Northridge quake. This quake was like a baby aftershock compared to the Northridge quake. Not much ado about anything.

Is my typing shaky? We've had five earthquakes in a row this evening in Los Angeles.

Magnitudes: 3.6, 2.1, 5.1, 3.4, and just now a 2.0.

And maybe more to come.

Oh wow, I totally thought I was imagining that. I was just at the drive thru window and felt my car shaking but just chalked it up to maybe a truck passing by or something. I knew there was something more to it!

Or if you were at Taco Bell it could have been someone in the bathroom.

I'm from the midwest too, but I've never seen an actual twister, but been in a lot of tornado warning "situations." I've been in the bay area for college and have yet to experience an earthquake.

I grew up in Tornado alley. spent my life between Omaha and Oklahoma City, and down that I-35 corridor. I've been through a couple of F4s, that make storm chasers bust a few nuts in trying to get to.

Which is why out here in Sacramento, the 'tornado' we had in Roseville (10 miles northeast) was nothing; it was something I would go out and dance to 'Singin' in the Rain'.

Funnily enough, people were out trying to record it onto their phones as if it was the biggest phenomenon to hit the planet.

Sacramento, incidentally is more seismically stable than most of the state, even though we are roughly 100 miles from both the San Andreas (which was on Loma Prieta in 1989), and the Hayward fault line (overdue to go off). Both are roughly 15 miles apart (split by the bay). I felt a rumble that could be likened to foreplay in the bed with the one in Truckee. Other than that, I felt the Ludlow earthquake in 2002 in Las Vegas, as my aunt did in Phoenix, and my uncle did in San Diego. That one made the Bellagio and Stratosphere shake.

In all honesty, in being from the midwest, if I'm going to go down to natural disaster, I at least want to see what is going to take me out, not have it happen and have the consequences take me out. Perfect Example: Loma Prieta when it cause those cars to fall when it collapsed the Bay Bridge. You could still see the damage from that if you were on the old span of the Bay Bridge.

Funnily enough? Was that an unintended pun?

When I moved to California in the early 80's I landed in an apartment in Rohnert Park. In the first couple weeks a thunderstorm rolled through with quite a bit of lightning and thunder. I called down from my second story unit asking a large group of people why they were gathered in the parking lot. They looked astonished at me and pointed to the light show in the evening sky. I replied, "that's all?" and returned indoors. I think that was the last time I saw lightning and heard thunder in the twenty years I lived in the Bay Area.

I expected the Cypress structure would be your example.

I worked through Loma Prieta (and others) and went through two tornados (I don't remember their F rating) while growing up in Iowa and honestly I prefer quakes.

I thought that these medium-sized quakes were "relieving pressure" that might lessen the intensity of subsequent quakes, but we saw an interview with an expert who said that's not the case, that the small quakes make no significant difference to "the big one" that will eventually hit us.
