Yeah, I felt it. Was about 45 min away here, so it was very mild for me.

I felt the trailing edge of the 5.1 main one. The 4.4 we had on the 17th of March was a lot more powerful where I'm at.

Me & my wife got to wake up one Sunday morning at 5:12 AM for the Big Bear/Landers quake. I think that was a 6.5 Enough shaking to keep us from running down the hall to get out.

Not a fun way to wake up.

So, being that everyone was awake, we & the neighbors went to breakfast. While sitting next to a large window in the restaurant, the 5.3 aftershock hit.

Fun morning.....

Born and raised in the SF Bay Area, I always liked a minor quake that caused no damage. Sit still to get the whole ride

Only one quake made me worry it wasn't going to stop, and made me run out of the building

1989 Loma Prieta earthquake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

While it caused significant damage, for me, it was just the power was off when I got home. It did make me jumpy for a month or so after. I live in an apartment building, and when people run along the balcony or up stairs, it makes a small shake. That made me tense up for a while. There is something very unsettling to having the earth shake under you. The Big One will be a major life change/event, if it happens in my lifetime, and I survive. Not worried, que sera sera...

Yea it must bit a bit unsettling to ride one out,
Living in Texas we get to live with flooding mostly/ high winds..,
But yea the closest I've come across was a noisy stair climber thought it was a 7.5 - 350 pounder

Ahhh I don't worry about those anymore after The Big SF Quake during the Giants game and The Northridge Quake this is just small potatoes

I remember at one point in the early 90's we had a ton of Earthquakes that year Whittier Quake too

So i mean what are you going to do besides hide under something you can't run from The Ground

Besides I'd rather take a 30 second shaking then to endure a endless Hurricane storm that last for Days or a Tornado that will whisk you into the air and drop you to the ground with no mercy

If the ground doesn't open up and take you down i just look at it as another good day on Earth

Earthquake in Northern California
I was awoken by a significant earthquake at 3:20AM this morning. It was a pretty good rolling, then a few strong jolts, maybe 15 seconds. No damage here, just an exciting ride. But based on the strength, and not knowing where the epicenter was, it occurred to me it could be a bad quake somewhere if...

Oklahoma Earthquake?
I was quite surprised that ~20 minutes ago, that my apartment started shaking for a few moments. While some Californians would find this too common to comment, it is very rare here. I have NEVER felt an earthquake here before, even though Googling, I found that there are a few minor earthquakes...
