It's a bit strange that it took *that long* for something greater than 5.5 to hit SoCal.

no, it was gentle so methinks it's a slip fault (chino fault) rather than the thrust fault like Whittier narrows.

As a native Californian I thought I was used to earthquakes (was around in SF for the '89 Loma Prieta quake), but my heart is pounding. I'm in the city next to the epicenter.

I was taking a shower on the 2nd floor (lots of swaying) when it happened. I finished up fast in case there were strong aftershocks. Phew. No damage in the house. No gas smells or power/water outage. My housemates, who are from out-of-state, freaked out.

Wheeeeeeee!

One broken vase, couple of books off the shelves, some really pissed-off rabbits, some sleeping other critters, some terrified kittens. Oh, and the dishwasher slid out a bit.

Me? Was standing in the doorway and considering giving-up atheism. This is an OLD building and we're up a few stories, so things really moved.
