only 5.4 :(

How was everyone else's "earthquake experience"?

Mine (at the 11th floor top of my building) with it swaying 3-6ft each way was, um, interesting
Never really felt anything like it before, felt kind of surreal.


Welcome to California I suppose!

That's the real, "Welcome to California", Adrian! Congratulations on your first shaker!!

Definitely gives new perspective to 'keeping your feet on solid ground'. Of course, we like more smaller size quakes than one big one, like the Alaska quake.

Only 5.4. Wait 'till we have a 6.0 - much more powerful than even a 7.3.
