I hears the news a few hours back from someone in Australia who gets the news faster then seen on domestic news sites! Sky News: Strong quake rocks Southern California

Then I switched to the 24hr. news channel on cable to see the breaking news reports on it.

Some might say it was a ripple effect following the recent earthquakes in Halti and later in Chile now surfacing in Northern Mexico. Note the San Adreas fault line sees similar tremors in California itself as Airbot should only too well know!

The initial reports coming in since the 3:40pm Pacific(MS Redding time) are some gas lines, structural damages in buildings close to the Mexican border while no major injuries. For the total on the Mexican side however the news is slow going! Hopefully it won't be anything like the two other quakes lately!

This scared the HELL out of me and my friend.

We were sitting in my room (me in a chair, him on the floor against my bed), and he asks why my bed is shaking. I was confused until I looked around and saw things shaking around a little, and I could feel my chair moving. We came out of my room about the same time as my sister and my dad, and we asked if we felt it. Mom came up from downstairs and said the same thing.

The scary part? I live in Phoenix, AZ, about 300 miles from Baja.....
First earthquake I have ever felt here.

Scared the hell out of us.

The San Andreas gets the attention as it is the major fault seperating the North American and Pacific Tectonic Plates, but in Southern California, other, lesser known faults have been the ones to cause the real shaking: 1933 Long Beach earthquake, Newport-Inglewood Fault; 1972 Sylmar earthquake, San Fernando Fault Zone; 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake, Whittier Fault; 1994 Northridge earthquake, etc.

From downtown Los Angeles, the San Andreas is, give or take, 60 miles east in or near San Bernardino, CA.

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...
