Yow!

EARTHQUAKE!

Yowza! That was a big'un!

Edited to add: Looks like we were caught between two of them less than a minute apart:


Edited to add: OK, now it looks like they've dropped the 4.7 in Bakersfield and changed the Baja to a 5.2. Interesting.

5.1 offshore near the Baja Penninsula, about 60 miles away from Tijuana. Of course, we didn't feel a thing up here in LA...

Plus a second one near Bakersfield - San Diego seems to have been caught in between them.

I doubt that you felt the Bakersfield one, though. It was only 4.7 and was about 50 miles north of me, and we didn't notice a thing here, so you probably just got the Baja one.

The news is reporting it's probably both combined, but yes, certainly the Baja one was more predominant.

Well now that they're saying the 4.7 one didn't actually happen... yeah, sure. :D

No, it wasn't. That was a middlin' one. When it goes for more than five seconds and you can't even walk, *THAT* is a big one.

Hey, I've only had one other one to compare it to.

Damn, ya beat me to it. You posted while I was still sitting here trying to figure out which one it was I felt. I'm guessing I felt the 5.1, but I could be wrong.

I wish I weren't so damn sensitive to these things -- when the Loma Prieta quake happened in '89 up near San Francisco, I felt it in LA.

And I'll echo the previous sentiment that a 5.1 is merely middling. If I stopped on my way to the doorway, it ain't a big'un. I've been dealin' with these bastard things since Whittier Narrows in '87.

They're dropped the 4.7 off the map now; they're just showing the 5.1.

Caltech's website has also dropped the 4.7. Interesting.

I think the initial Bakersfield report was computer-generated and may have been a reaction to the Baja one. Notice now the Baja one now says it's been verified by a seismologist.

That was a weak one! Just a short little jolt, and that's it? Bah.

Us east coasters will try not to sound too naive about the whole thing.

I didn't feel anything..from either...whew! Hope you guys aren't too shaken up.

But I'm in the Valley, near Los Angeles.

I didn't know it was an earthquake until I tuned into the news. I thought my little sister feel down on her chair or something. :-)
