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!
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.
