Bike spoke to the face. ouch
Just felt another little one
Lived here all my life and have never been all that bothered by earthquakes but I reeeeaaally don't like the sudden jolt feeling of these Hayward fault swarm-quakes.
I don't remember posting that comment but this morning's Hayward quake was the same. Like a truck slamming against the house.
5:33 am PST. Woke me up quick. Dammit.
Yeah me too, it freaked me out. I didnt know what happened.
hoping everyone's okay out there... seems like nothing too terrible, though.
I think everyone in the bay felt it except me
My toys didnt even fall, so we are fine
I woke up just in time to feel it...then promptly went back to sleep. That's the second time this week that I've woken up just before a quake. There was one a few days before this last one but it wasn't very big and just sort of rolled along.
I have a earthquake alarm of sorts. A precariously placed mirror that audibly wobbles when we have one.
good morning fruitvale!
woke me up after working a really long weekend, i had only been asleep for half an hour, but i was out cold.
no divers or damage, but jeez... o_O
Earthquake! (made my coffee wiggle in the mug)
12/26/17, 10:32 pm Local time (Pacific Std. Time)
Magnitude 3.8, 7 km ENE of East Foothills, CA
Depth: 9.02 km (5.6 miles)
Did you feel it?
Short but strong enough that I had a lot of toys fall. I was up for another hour after the shock just putting things back
Been a lot of activity lately. In addition to the few in California the past couple days (and their respective aftershocks), several have hit off the coast of BC (my homeland) this week as well, three Friday and one earlier in the week:
Let's hope this is not a precursor to a major tectonic shift, and things settle out. Stay safe all, and it's always a good idea to have some preparation (kits, routes) planned.
This morning we woke to quite a sharp jolt!
Even though it measured a 3.5, it felt more like a 5
I didn't feel anything in berkeley but saw on my fb feed lots of people did.
3.6 magnitude at 3:39 am, epicenter at El Cerrito. Felt stronger in SF, jolted us awake!
Woke up thinking someone had thrown me out to sea!
It was a long one! I had time to think, "please don't mess up my toy shelves"
Hey at least your earthquakes are not likely man-made. There was a 5.3 quake in west Texas last night. Almost certainly due to fracking in the oil industry. There are no preexisting fault lines out there.
i was wondering why my toys were on the ground
