Earthquake!

Many of you have heard and some have inquired about the earthquake we had in California last night around 8:00. It was only 5.6 on the Richter scale, but we were almost on top of the epicenter, so really shook the house for 10-15 seconds. Everyone and everything here is fine. We had a couple knick-knacks fall in the kitchen, but that was it.

Here is a map of the San Franciso Bay Area, the big blue box showing where the earthquake was centered. We live right around the bottom of the big blue square.

  1. We felt it too (in Redwood City). I have been in two quakes > 7.0, so it wasn’t bad, but you never know when it starts how bad it will get. That’s the scary part.

  2. Yes, that is always my first reaction. While it was happening I was wondering where the epicenter was because if it wasn’t close, someone else was getting it much worse!! It was actually quite a shaker here…not as bad as Loma Prieta, but certainly got your attention!
