I'm home with my daughter and felt it immediately ran to her to make sure. It's been YEARS since I've felt an earth quake and although a small one (to my standards) it was a bit scary...the news are saying that it was felt in Las Vegas also.-eek-

Felt it in Santa Paula (Ventura County). Lost a little water out of the pool. That's about it. Kind of funny, I was standing in the garage next to the Lotus when it hit and I stood there looking at everything thinking, nothing better fall on the car, lol.

After getting my lotus, one of the first things I did is make sure all boxes and storage won't fall onto the car in an earthquake.

That said, I don't know how good of job I did. Hopefully it would hold up

I'm in a window office on the 14th floor in Burbank. Rocked like a mopho. I've been here for all the recent big ones (70's, 94). Other than the fact that I was in a relatively tall building on rollers (a new experience), this was a piece of cake. Let's hope it's not a "pre shock".

Are you guys watching the news? Turns out it wasn't an earthquake. Chuck Norris punched the earth.

I didn't even get out of bed for the Northridge one. I only found out about it the next morning when I saw there were news reports of fires at all the channels, and I was looking for my saturday or sunday morning cartoons.. :D
