scared the crap out of us
my heart’s still racing
How big? Did it do any damage?
Is everyone okay?
3.2 it shook the house pretty good for just a 3.2 though, no damage except my heart racing
yes, we’re ok, I can’t believe how fast it was, no rolling, just a real quick, abrupt one
Sometimes when those things hit, they’ll sound like a clap of thunder from shaking the house.
Yeah, they don’t give you much time to think.
Many people from outside of California are scared to move here because they’re afraid of earthquakes. I would rather live here and be jolted a little once every two years than live in the Midwest and face 15,000 tornados each year or live on the East coast and have hurricanes each year that pretty much destroy everything in their path and leave the area devastated for years afterward. No thanks.
Hope you’re okay @Leaf
Whereabouts do you live ?
no time, by the time we got into the doorway it was already over
yea, we’re ok, just shook up. We live 90 miles from San Francisco
The worst dreams I’ve ever had were massive earthquakes and tsunamis.
Gotta stop watching too many end of the world movies.
we are a mile from the epicenter of the quake
Take care of yourself eh. Musta been really scary.
Hey, we’re neighbors! I think you posted that before though.
are you in south bay? I’m in Ukiah
Yes, I live in Santa Clara Valley. Otherwise known as Silicon Valley. I’ve heard of Ukiah of course.
well the san andreas is active keep your shoes by your bed
In the 1960’s there were many predictions that a huge earthquake was going to happen on the San Andreas fault that would make half of California slip into the ocean. Many people believed this and it actually scared many people. Some scientists even gave the exact day this was supposed to happen. When that day arrived a bunch of hippies with crowbars went to the San Andreas fault and tried to pry it apart, lol. Leave it to the hippies.
I remember growing up hearing that California was going to slide off into the ocean due to a huge quake. I’ve always been afraid of earthquakes, been through quite a few growing up in the bay area but nothing compares to the Loma Prieta quake back in '89, that one hit and kept on rolling. Scary.
