Pretty big, at least a 5.

I woke up and felt it shaking hard so I laid flat on my back and grabbed the pole lamp on my right side. Then I remembered to put a pillow over my face incase the plaster starts falling. It was long and hard.

It seems to have been off the coast southwest of Los Angeles.
That was a scary one.

Yes, I heard a low rumbling and was wondering if there was some slight swaying, then it arrived and cleared up any ambiguity. House swayed, windows rattled. Not the worst I've felt - Sylmar '71 (6.6) and Northridge '94 (6.7) were much worse - but it was a good one. They're now saying 4.7.

I must be a native, I continued to text a friend as it was happening. Dog was on the floor eating the rest of a sandwich, Dfi was at his computer playing poker. wow, I guess it will take another Northridge to get our attention lol
No, it didn't feel bad. But I imagine if it wakes you up, then it must feel very very scary.Now back to your regular progamming:happytv:

Oh I am a native and it got my attention! It scared the crap out of me! Corpsebride, this quake is closer to where you and I live than all the other recent ones SoCal has been having. This one was centered around Hawthorne/Inglewood, which is not far, and it was first reported as 4.7 and now they are saying it was a 5.0. It was hard and jolty and loud in my building, and I jumped like an Olympic athlete when my windows and doors started creaking. My building is so old and the walls are so thin that it seemed like it was shaking for an eternity. I HATE HATE HATE HATE quakes, and there have been WAY too many of them recently.

Oh Sherry, I am so sorry it was scary for you:scared1:We dont live in a tall building. We live in a bungalow complex, all the buildings are single floor.we lucked out. I remember the Northridge one threw me out of bed though. That was terrible.You are okay though right?:eek:

I live in one of those pancake-ish 3-level buildings (like the kind that collapsed in Northridge) and the structure is so weak you can hear the walls bending with the quakes! I think if the accompanying sounds were not so bad, it wouldn't be as unnerving! Yes, I am physically okay, but I get very nervous and jumpy in quakes. I like living alone - except when there are quakes!! I was surveying the room and trying to decide if I should start taking down picture frames and Disney snowglobes - as I always do if a quake seems nasty - but I also was ready to go bolting out the door.

Yes, the Northridge quake was terrifying, wasn't it? People who didn't feel it don't understand. That one actually traumatized people who were nowhere near the epicenter because it was so violent. I know I was one of many who couldn't go to sleep for weeks without being fully clothed - if I was lucky enough to sleep at all. I was too afraid I would have to run outside and didn't want to be undressed! I imagine it was traumatic for you, Corpsebride, because you got thrown out of bed in the darkness of the early morning hours. How did you manage to sleep in the weeks after that one? The Landers/Big Bear quake combo of 1992 was pretty ugly, too. Way too many quakes here lately. I don't like it at all!:scared1:

DS & DDIL were just about to be loaded onto an Indiana Jones vehicle when it hit. (They were on the staircase leading to that platform.) They said every ride was evacuated. They're hoping that rides will re-open shortly.

They're having a rough time with rides. TSMM stopped while they were on it yesterday - took over 20 minutes for a CM to unlatch the lap-bar and lead them out!

Well, yes, that one really messed me up. I was without water and power for 4 days. Not bad compared to other natural disasters but I slept in my car for about a week, took showers soo fast lol incase another one came I would be dressed and out the door. I think I was awake for about 36 hours after, so this one for me was a walk in the park.

I have cracks in the plaster running east and west because that is the way the lathing runs. One is in the midle of the room and goes west then left turns the right turns and goes past the ceiling light fixture then turns right the left to continue on the same board as it started on. I got another closer to the nrth wall.

That is why I laid flat on my back, held the lamp so it would not bonk me, and covered my face with a pillow. I did not know and do not know if that is it or if the is a foreshock of an even bigger one. If I had been wide awake and setting up and did not have my fingers enmeshed in the wrist brace then it might have been fun to ride out.

Now to wait and see if that is it or if it is a precursor. I think I just felt a tiny one just now.

Mom was in the Long Beach one and remember sleeping outdoors for a couple of nights then her parents went back to living in a house. Too many to remember.

'Precursor' has got to be one of the worst and scariest words in the English language! I hate it!

Now, of course, the newscasters are giving us the drills on what to do and where/how to protect ourselves in the event of a bigger quake. I have felt a couple of the aftershocks only because my windows let me know they are happening with their loud rattling and because El Segundo and Hawthorne, etc. are all very close by. I wasn't alive at this time, but I seem to recall my grandmother telling me about a nasty Long Beach quake maybe back in the '60s or so?? I can't recall when she said it was, but it was supposed to be icky.

Long Beach was March 11, 1933 and it was one mean earthquake taht did not end. Someone at Excelsior High School died when part of a building face fell on him and main business district of Norwalk saw some heavy damage. That earthquake finally started the earthquake standards for buildings which over time have been made stricter.

I been bit by the proverbial dog too many times and now respect even the tiniest quakes as I know from reading about Long Beach that a bigger one could happen.

Now with all these happening, we need to go buy bottled waters and stuff to store in the house in case something happens. I have no idea what we did when Northridge happened. We didn't have power or water for at least 2 or 3 days from what I remember...

I don't know how you guys can live there! I would be cowering at every truck rumble. Shakes head and thinks...How many nights did I spend in the bathtub or under my bed when the tornado sirens went off? Oh well! Every place has its drawbacks. I went to college with a couple of girls from Northridge. I remember watching the coverage of the quake with them. It was days before they heard from their parents. Also, DLH room info says to stay in the room in the event of a quake. Is this legit? Keep safe, all? I pray it quiets down for you!

I just got a bunch of water delivered today - but it only helps me if I stay indoors. Not having a car, I can't tote cases of water with me! Yes, the power was out for a long time over here after Northridge (I mean, not as bad as what happened after Hurricane Katrina, but bad for metropolitan L.A.). And things had flown all around the room (the shaking was violent), so it was dark and I was trying not to step on broken things while I looked for my shoes. See I had just gotten out of the shower and was in a towel while brushing my teeth when the shaking started. When I realized it was really bad, I went running to the front door in my towel, and toothbrush in my mouth, and clung to the wall and prayed until it stopped. When it did stop, it was pitch black outside, and all of the neighbors from the buildings across the street started leaving! It was weird to see everyone just piling out of the buildings in the dark of the early morning. They were all carrying candles and hopping into their cars. I needed to get dressed since I was basically naked, but I couldn't see two feet in front of me to get to my clothes and shoes. So I shouted out the front door and asked one of the kind neighbors who was escaping to loan me their candle so I could get dressed! It is never a good thing to be 98% undressed when a huge quake strikes! And every time an aftershock happened, I was nervous and on edge for hours.

But at least I didn't get thrown out of my bed like what happened to Corpsebride during Northridge! Yikes! I think I would have not been able to sleep for a year if that had happened to me.

So now tonight's quake is back to 4.7 and it MAY have been located on the Newport-Inglewood fault - which is the same fault that caused the horrible 1933 Long Beach quake that Mechurchlady just explained about.:scared1: Last thing we need is for that old fault to start acting up - we have enough other ones to worry about!

Try not to use a candle after a quake. There could be escaping gas. Use a flashlight.

Geez, you guys get ton of shakers. I find myself in disbelief when people say that the Pacific NW has a lot of seismic activity. Yeah, like MICROquakes. You guys get a moderate/severe earthquake every several months. We get one like every 10 years.

We were in the spa at HoJo's when the quake hit. I only had my feet in and was sitting on the side sipping a glass of wine when I wondered why my butt was moving when it was sitting on the side of the spa and not in the jet. knew it wasn't the wine as I'd only had a sip but thought I was going nuts until the others in the area all said at the same time "did you feel that?" . The elevator at HoJo's was then not working so our poor pizza guy had to walk up the stairs. :confused3

Yes, I am getting my mini flashlight out to put in the purse and the bigger one to keep next to me while sleeping. Candles are dangerous post quakes, but I had no choice after Northridge. It was pitch black after Northridge, and I wasn't dressed at all and had no idea how to get to the flashlight without stepping on broken things in my bare feet, so I had to borrow the candle from the neighbors so I could get to my clothes and get dressed and then later find the flashlight.

Yes, they are saying on the news that tonight's quake now appears to have been confirmed as a product of the Newport-Inglewood fault, which produced the nasty 1933 Long Beach temblor. Lovely. It is too long after that event to be considered an aftershock of the Long Beach 1933 quake, so it is considered a new one all its own.

sherry I do hope you are able to get some rest tonight. I dont mind earth quakes but I havent been in a bad one yet either, and certainly not after having children....anything freaks me out nowadays. I am getting nervous to travel back to DL as there have been so many quakes. We were lucky not to experience any during our april visit.

Thank you, Krissy! Yes, I will be able to sleep tonight, provided nothing happens that is worse. The Northridge quake was a particular kind of quake that scared and traumatized everyone. If we were to have a 6.7 on the same fault as the quake tonight, it would do a ton of damage and would be equally as traumatizing, I think.

Now, a month ago I would have said, "Krissy, don't you worry - there won't be any quakes when you come next come to DLR." And probably there won't be. But the (cough) very reassuring lady, Lucy, at CalTech (who they always trot out in front of the cameras after any quake) just told us, when asked what the chances were of more quakes, "Well...quakes cause more quakes." Thanks, Lucy! She went on to explain that we are in a period of high quake activity like what we were aparently in in the late '80s and early '90s (ahem, Landers & Big Bear were in 1992 and Northridge happened in 1994 - probably because the ground was shaking so much leading up to 1992 and 1994 that the faults let loose!), and "whenever there is that much ground movement, it is bound to trigger other quakes." Way to put us all at ease, Lucy!:thumbsup2 She said that we had very little quake activity in California in the late '90s and early part of the 2000's, but now we are back in rockin' and a-rollin' mode....so basically, that means, unfortunately, that anything could happen and everybody hang on for the ride!

During an earthquake it is best to stand or sit in a doorway and ride out the earthquake but make sure the door does not take you out. Try to get away from anything that can fly like televisions. I was holding onto my floor lamp to avoid getting bashed or worse having broken glass on the floor.

I bruised my foot during the Whittier eartquake when I went to check on an elderly neighbor. I found out about them nice sharp old terracotta tiles the hard way. One major problem with earthquakes is people running out of buildings and getting hit by debris or stepping on debris.

I rather live here and face the earthquakes. My house is still intact after the Santa Barbara, Loma Prieta, Long Beach, Northridge, and Whittier quakes. She is a shack on the inside right now but on the outside she is a powder blue lady who has stood many an earthquake. I trust her and will stay here for now.

I see Katrina and how people still do not have homes. I rather be rocking in my bed than have my home obliterated by a tornado or flooded. I am happy here.

We just got off Indy when it hit, walked over to space mountain to use our fast passes and the ride was shut down due to the quake, and were testing. Most of the rides we walked by were down, at least they had the fireworks tonight. (side note) I still strongly dislike the celebrate street party parade thing......popcorn::

Sherry E
05-18-2009, 12:48 PM
Well the problem with a lot of people still not having homes post-Katrina is not based on the type of natural disaster it was - it is based on the government's screw-ups and lack of money. The same thing could happen if we get hit with a whopper quake, except minus the flooding, BUT add in tons of FIRES everywhere and not enough men to fight them. Remember, before Katrina happened, our own Northridge quake was the costliest natural disaster ever. I don't think those folks in Northridge whose apartment building collapsed on top of them were thinking they would rather live in quake country than live in hurricane country or tornado country at that moment. It is all kind of relative. In other words, nothing really hits home for most of us until it....hits home, literally. My friend who has lived his whole life in New Orleans has been through tons of hurricanes and never got scared by them at all - until Katrina, which caused a major problem just getting OUT of the city to a safe place. It just takes one huge event to change one's outlook. We haven't had our massive life-altering quake yet where any of us live. Northridge was as close to it as we came in SoCal, but to the people living IN Northridge, it was life-altering and caused a lot of people to move away because they were traumatized. You know what I mean? With hurricanes and tornados, there is usually some sort of warning. We don't have the luxury of a warning with a bad quake. But, hurricanes and tornados seem to happen like clockwork every year, whereas we don't know every year if there will be a quake. We could go for years without feeling a quake, but we won't know when it's coming. So it is kind of a trade off.

So basically, what I am saying is, I love living in California and I have been here all my life, but quakes scare me to death because of the potential havoc they can cause if they hit right under where I live. The quakes don't happen enough for me at the moment to scare me away YET, but I cannot promise that I wouldn't be shell-shocked enough to leave if a scary one happened 2 miles from where I live and crumbled my roof and walls around me.

Oh man, let's talk about the big SF quake, that was my first CA quake and I didn't even know it was a quake! LOL I got in my car, started it, thought it was running funny and turned it off right as the quake started and then stopped. LOL It was insane! Then we heard about the bridge on the news and that was really weird. I was like 17 or so........

Sherry, Courtney, everyone of my Dis Friends I am so glad you're OK!!!! Now Courtney, Sherry, go BUY FLASHLIGHTS!!!! Holy cow ladies, you gotta have those! We have like 10 in our house in various places! LOL And bottled water, we always have that too. :)

The image of that bridge in that SF quake was so surreal and bizarre! Imagine being on that bridge at that time - how terrifying!

I have a bunch of bottled water actually right by my front door, so when I go bolting for the front door during the next big quake, I will have my water right there at my fingertips and won't have to rummage for it. And I pulled out one flashlight which is on the table next to me when I sleep, and I have a mini flashlight that is purse size. I also have an old Walkman that I can use as an emergency radio for news if need be. I need to stock up on protein bars (Promax is my favorite brand!)...and I keep my shoes right next to me when I sleep in case I have to run out. So I am not 100% prepared but I have some things together.

That must be the Loma Prieda quake, right? That was 89. That was the one that game me nightmares for months. I was 21 and just married a few months and alone in the apartment.

What we do for water- we buy the cases of bottled water at Costco. We use them for lunches but I always keep a stack of 3 cases. That way we always have some and it isn't still there getting stale. I used to have gallon jugs just sitting around but I realized I would be afraid to use them anyway.

most important is the batteries not the flashlight. there are crank powered radios also you can get.

A friend of mine had to leave Galveston area for Hurricane Rita. By the time she was home her family work truck was not working, a car was in an accident, they spent tons of money on rooms and gasoline, and spent many hours getting out of the area. They got home to find some water damage from a broken window but worst was that the thieves looted her office and stole the motor from her boat.

I hope we do not have any more for a year or two.

I was only 4 years old when the Loma Prieta hit and I can still remember every detail because it was such a traumatic experience. Earthquakes terrify me even more now than they did when I was a kid. I mean, it seems like when you're a kid the worst part is the actual earthquake itself. I have found that as I've gotten older, the worst part of an earthquake is the worrying afterward about whether or not loved ones are okay. That is, unless you're hurt yourself, in which case you should first be concerned about getting yourself to a doctor. Anyway, I have since learned a few things about earthquakes so I hope that when the next big one hits in my area, I'll be prepared and won't panic. Hopefully no one was hurt in this quake. I also hope that all of the So Cal earthquakes die down...

I have lived in Northern California all my life and love it for the most part, but the unpredictability of earthquakes and the impending "big one" is almost enough to make me pack up and move!

I grew up in So Cal, and earthquakes were always second nature. They are over in a couple min. and you assess the damage and move on. I was 8 when the 71 quake hit - our house slipped off it's foundation and some walls came down around our yard. My dad owned a lunch truck biz and his truck slipped into gear and he had to chase it down the street. All of my mom's china broke except a few pieces. Sylmar was a mess, they had just built a new freeway and it came down. In 1985, I was working in downtown L.A. in the Crocker Bank building on the 25th floor, and the building started to sway - a little more creepy than I had experienced before - wasn't sure I wanted to do that again!

I remember the SF quake of 1990 - that was pretty bad with fires and freeways collapsing. Lots of people from our area went up there to help. I had already moved to AZ by the time the Northridge quake hit - so we didn't feel that one.

Probably the scariest quake I ever felt was when we were in AZ, it was 1991, and it was centered in Joshua Tree - middle of the desert. Joshua Tree is about 2 hours from us. My first thought was - hey, why am I feeling a quake in AZ? If I'm feeling it here, it must be pretty bad in CA. So I started crying for all the people in CA. Phone lines were down, we couldn't call any of our friends, so I was really scared for them. Plus, my daughter was visiting her grandmother in CA, so I was very concerned. There's been a few others that we've felt in the middle of the night that have had us jump out of bed - back when we had a waterbed we were always concerned that the bed would fall thru the floor, so we would get off the bed right away. I still get scared when I feel an earthquake in AZ.

Now, when we went back to the midwest last summer, that was scary. Things like tornados I can't handle - it's not something you can walk away from easily. We kept missing tornadoes luckily, but the devastation is overwhelming when you go back to somewhere you recently were and see it all.

Glad everyone was okay :)

So I have no clue if this was an aftershock of the one two days ago or if this was a different one located right near where I live, but my nerves have just about had it!

Update: it was a 4.1, located near Hawthorne - which means it must be related to the one 2 days ago. Crap, I wish they would END already! I cannot take this constant shaking!

Why are there five or more earthquake threads? I use this one as it was the first posted.
