You guys are getting them a lot lately. Don't know if that is good (relieving stress), or bad. I've lived in Bay Area all my life, always like to sit real still in a quake, to feel the whole ride. The 1989 quake was the first and only one that made me think "run away!". I live in an apartment building, and if someone runs along the outside walkways, the building can "jump" a bit. After the big quake, that made me tense up for a month or so. 1st quake I ever thought might not stop, and might be the big one. We all know it's inevitable up here. If it happens, you guys will know down there too. A Guy

I had spent 13 years here and never felt an earthquake. Since I moved back from Washington in December, that's the 4th decent one I've felt. The fault lines are getting angry...

I can remember a 'few' of them when I lived in SoCal.

Luckily, no big shakers. Couple of them gave a pretty good rattle though

20 years ago there was a long searies of quakes in San Diego that were all off shore but closer than the ones now. Some up to 6.2. Caused things to fall off shelves and at work created somewhat of a mess as I worked at a ceramics shop at the time. Lasted about a year.

These are not as bad for S.D as they are all out in the desert but I sure wouldn't want to live near Ocotillo or El Centro. But these aftershocks could go on a LONG time since the root cause was a 7.2.

And yeah, who knows if this is releaving a lot of long built up pressure in a rather slow and gentle way or if it's just going to put a huge amount of pressure now on a fault 100 miles north that'll trigger another 7+!

It's just going to be one big snap and that'll be all she wrote!

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...
