Here in Burbank, we shook and rolled for about 20 seconds. Not a big deal. 5,8 according to the AP. For California natives, it doesn't interupt much. Jonathan-EMW is closer to the epicenter.

Sister-in-law is in Rancho Cucamonga. She says all is seemingly OK there, but her husband was at the dentist's having a root canal. She hasn't heard from him yet. Man, that's a double whammy!!

I am right at the center of it, it was a pretty good one. Strongest in at least 10-12 years House and garage have stuff on the floor but no damage really. I suppose we will need to send out an inspection/work train to check the line for damage or alignment problems.

I just received an e-mail from Jonathan (EMW) in Chino and he said it was a strong one there. Parts fell off shelves and onto his car. But no real damage. Good news. OOps! Jonathan beat me to it.

We took a hard jolt at first, then the rolling and shaking. Knock some pictures off the shelves and walls. Nuthing serious. We are about 15 miles from the epicenter of Chino Hills.

I had just gotten back from having a root canal./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crying.gif

The real problem, of course, is the density of the population where that earthquake hit. A few years ago, not far from here, we had a 7.9. The epicenter was up in the Alaska Range only about a hundred miles away. The only real damage was to the highway system. Even the Alyeska Pipeline, which runs through the area, was only minimally affected. But try to image what a 7.9 would have done to Los Angeles !

Shook pretty good here in Bellflower about 20 miles from Chino. Had three locomotives fall from their shelves. Tore up a highly detailed MTH GS-4 pretty bad as it fell about 6 feet to a very hard floor.

No problems here in Glendora. I was in Huntington Beach at the time and it felt like a pretty good one. Lots of rock-n-roll. I got home and found a couple of drawers partly open. That's it. I am about 7-8 miles from the epicenter.
