Just had a 6.5 quake here. That's my biggest so far. House did good. Dogs are all freaked out, but were unable to predict. Hope all is well

Ho Hum...

I've lived in Calif most of my life. Been through a lot of 'big' ones. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

I've been in south SF this week at our warehouse and felt both the 4.5 and the 6.5 today. We thought they were jet planes flying real close overhead. Exciting enough for this Montana boy!

I live in a country where eathquakes occurs frequently.
6.5 is a pretty large earthquake, but the destructiveness depents on how far and how deep it is. I've been experienced some large earthquakes, but all are not very colse to where I was then. Actually, my master degree is about earthquake early warning. Hope the technique can be used to provide warning for people to reduce the damage more efficiently in the future.

Ho Hum!? Thanks Nick for belittling our experience. If a ground-shaking event bores you, I am saddened. NATURE IS NEVER BORING

I love a good earthquake, as long as things don't start falling over. No better reminder about how powerful the forces of nature are! But I didn't feel either of these ones.

No intent to belittle anyone. We have 1,000's of earthquakes each year in California. 100's daily in the Mammoth area. My home in Palm Springs suffered minor structural damage in the Landers quake. I was living in the LA area during the Northridge quake. I was staying in the top floor of the largest hotel in Pasadena during the Big Bear quake. And was backpacking near Mammoth during the large quake in the late 80's. They are just a part of life in California, as are tornados in the midwest and hurricanes in the coast area. Nothing to get excited about unless the are major disaters.

I have seen scores of people freak out over them and actually scream and cry during after shocks. I have seen people just up and leave, leaving their homes and belongings behind.

A snow storm in Palm Springs gets me excited :). The last one was in 1979.
