It's not a real earthquake, unless it's a 6 or higher.

On a side note, it's always fun to watch how the tourists react to earthquakes here. I remember when I was living in the dorms at UCLA a few years ago, and we had a pretty sizable quake one night. All the kids from the mid-west were running around freaking out, exaggerating how big the quake was, scared to death of aftershocks. The rest of us didn't even get outta bed. The dorm shook, we woke up, told the noobs that it was alright, and went back to sleep. Good times... ;-D



Sounds like you missed an excellent opportunity to provide some soothing and comfort to all the cute gals in the UCLA dorms who were scared and in need of some reassuring. ;-D

Thing is, I don't think you get "used" to it as if to say "Ah, 5.8, 5.4, no big deal". It does some good work on giving your nerves the jitters but all in all, not a bad quake. Just some gentle rolling the first 10 seconds but after that it intensified a little, to make things somewhat more nerve wracking and uncomfortable. Usually, quakes that start out a bit weak generally last as weak but it was a first for me to feel a quake that shook steadier throughout. All quakes are different and I'm glad it wasn't a sharp, damaging jolt. We didn't feel any of the aftershocks that were going on at the epicenter and so, no harm done. ;-D

And if you're planning on coming out to Southern California, now is a fantastic time. This summer has been comfortable for the most part with plenty of sunshine and no oppressive heat at all. ;-D

spodog once again showing off the "sensitive act" :-b

On a more serious note, good that this quake wasn't too bad. It's only a matter of time though until Cali gets rocked with a huge earthquake...it could happen in 1000 years, it could happen next year, it could happen...RIGHT NOW!

I felt it. Wasn't so bad but I'm 30 miles from the epicenter. It woke me up and I thought I was dreaming at first... then I felt an aftershock and knew it was just another earthquake.
