I just read that there has been a strong earthquake in Southern California.
For all the comrades in that area, is everything all right?

The epicenter seems to have been out in the country.  My friends in Los Angeles and Las Vegas felt it, but had no damage. 

 

California people - everyone okay?

Yes I saw it.
At first I only read about the last one.
The two have been very strong!

I definitely felt it.

 

Thought I was escaping those quakes when I left California. 

 

Wrong.

I messaged my nephew in San Francisco  and told him to stay safe. He was enjoying 4 July with his kids and he said, "what quake?" So my California geography is seriously bad!

LOL...

 

Yep, Nichola, the center of the earthquake was closer to me than to your nephew in SF.

Santa Barbara and east have been big time.  Between epic floods, devastating fires, and new the 2 quakes plus aftershocks my friends there are close to decamping for good.

 

Kat, how much shaking hit Vegas?

Havng watched (again) the video clip Rene shared took me back to Southern California childhood memories...

- Pre-planning for a quake was a way of life. Both at home and in school

- Car trunks (boots) always had cases of bottled water, some canned goods like tuna, a manual can opener, peanut butter, etc. 

 

Years later living in the Bay Area - same scenario.  I was there when the Oakland Bridge went down ...

 

End result - earthquakes really don't scare me - or most Californians; the mere thought of a tornado scares the living y'all know what out of me though.

Though I've been through many Caliquakes, it didn't quite dawn on me that we were experiencing one when my chair was mildly shaking on its own (Friday night). 

 

I thought that maybe I'd been watching too many of the Travel Channel's paranormal TV shows lol.
