Earthquake in San Diego
I dunno how big it was, or if anyone else felt it, but the entire apartment just moved with a big jolt. That was bizarre.

5. that was too early
This one hit at 1036. Also, that one was way too far away. I actually heard this one, it was at least a 3.0. Maybe that one was a preshock?

15. 3.9
And it was right here.

From the latitude and longitude, it was one degree one way, and half a degree the other, so not very far at all.

Heck, I grew up on the Gulf Coast. I laugh at hurricanes, but these earthquakes are just weird.

16. That makes more sense
3.9 is pretty small, but if you're right on top of it, it is quite noticeable.

Glad it wasn't a big one!

3. My nephew grew up in Orange County, but lives in Barcelona
Edited on Tue Oct-07-03 12:41 PM by soupkitchen
And I told him in an e-mail this morning to speak to his parents's today because if Arnold wins God is going to let the whole state slide into the Pacific Ocean. This is the final warning.

11. My version of the Richter Scale
Magnitude <3 - "Was that a truck passing by?"
Magnitude 4 - You feel it
Magnitude 5 - Cable TV is out
Magnitude 6 - Phones out
Magnitude 7 - Electricity out

18. I think you're underestimating the 7's
The Northridge quake in 1994 was "only" a 6.6 and it knocked down several freeways, destroyed numerous homes and buildings, and killed dozens of people.
