I just mention yesterday that I would rather have an earthquake than a tornado... BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY!
There has not been any major damage reported as I sit here typing... our house shook like crazy... chandeliers swaying wildly and items did fall off of shelves... paintings all sideways... but we are all okay.
It was the most violent one I have ever felt... I yelled for my kids to get to our earthquake wall... YES... we have a few earthquake walls... when we did new construction we retro-fitted our home and earthquake walls were required to be built... we are still standing so I guess they work!
BTW... we are located approximately 12-15 miles from the center of the earthquake.
