Earthquake


We just had a big jolt here at the house.

About 6:25 am, sitting here at my desk, I felt a sort of shift, accompanied by a creaking of the house, then a big JOLT, and another sharp bounce. I heard the deck timbers creak; the dog came running back into the house, and then all was still.

I don't see anything that might have fallen of the shelves - I didn't hear anything fall - but we're going to wait until it's light out to inspect things.

On the radio, they say its a 4.7, centered somewhere around Sherman Oaks.

UPDATE: they downgraded it to a 4.4. Still.....!

Keep your gas tanks full & have ca$h. But you're probably used to it by now.

That would scare me silly. Glad you're ok!

Oddly enough, our evening news, here in Minneapolis, Mn. showed a clip of a man and woman anchor live on the KTLA news during the exact moment when your earth quake hit!

The hanging clouds in your photograph look like they felt the tremors.
I've never felt a big one and I hope I never do! Good thing you were home for Jack.
