    And certainly not like the Loma Prieta quake... I was there in
    Richmond, Ca for that one. Only 10 miles from the Cypress freeway
    that fell down.

    Yeah, we got about 30 seconds of rollers. Nothing like we had in
    April, which *really* got my attention!

    I found out today the inside of one of my co-workers house is a
    disaster area. She lives in Ocatillo, the epicenter of the quake. Her
    cupboards flew open and glassware and dinnerware flew out, bookshelves
    fell over, microwave fell off the kitchen counter and the refrigerator
    door flew open and all the food spewed out onto to the floor. Then to
    make matters worse, the electricity went off.

    I offered to go over after work today and help with the clean up, but
    right now she's just trying to deal with it emotionally. She's too
    scared to sleep in the house and is sleeping in her truck.

    I wish I could make it all better for her, this sucks, it really
    sucks.
    The news reported no damage was done, yeah, right.

    Koko, if you have any breakable stuff (figurines and such), Aaron
    Bros. has earthquake putty. I found it when I was trying to figure out
    how to outsmart my housecleaner, who uses her dusting as an
    opportunity to knock every picture in my house askew. A little dab of
    earthquake putty on the corner of each picture did the trick. I then
    used it to "glue" down some other breakable pieces, just in case.
    Won't help dishes and the like, but it'll help a wee bit for
    ornaments.

    Felt it in Chatsworth. Just a light rolling motion. Nothing like the
    jolt we got in '94.

    Thanks Terry, I've been meaning to do that, but like my co-worker I
    haven't gotten around to doing it. She even mentioned securing the
    bookshelves to the walls. We hear this all the time, just don't take
    the time to do it soon enough.
    I'm even thinking about securing the kitchen cabinets with child proof
    latches to keep the contents from ending up on the floor.
    I pray to God that I won't have to be happy I did it.
    I have some re-arranging and securing to do this weekend.

    Was awake at 4:30AM watching NBC4 located in Burbank when it hit in

    Knocked a bunch of newsroom equipment out of service, but they stayed

    Pain is your friend, your ally, it will tell you when you are seriously
    injured, it will keep you awake and angry, and remind you to finish the
    job and get the hell home. But you know the best thing about pain?

    It lets you know you're not dead yet!

    Now, there's a thought. I have a 17th century (not a typo - it's 17th
    century) longcase clock that wouldn't survive a face plant on the
    travertine.

    Y'know, there are some extents to which I will not go and this is one
    of 'em. The sheer aggravation of childproof latches on a day-to-day
    basis would drive me wonky. I might consider it for the cupboard my
    grandmother's china is in, but that's about it. Everything else is
    replaceable. And insured.

    Unfortunately, it's all part and parcel of living in wonderful SoCal.

    I used to think it was just me....... and that every time I went to LA there
    was a major earthquake.... till I realised it was a part of every say life
    there :-)


    > The news reported no damage was done, yeah, right.
    >



    I don't think they class broken 'nick nacks' and frayed nerves as newsworthy
    enough.


    After the Northridge quake had hit in '94, and after we had checked the
    apartment complex we were in (Granada Hills, on Devonshire) to make sure
    everyone was alive, I went on a (motorbike) tour around the area. I intended
    taking lots of pics to show everyone back here what had happened...... but
    after about 3, I stopped. Looking at the devestation, the shattered dreams
    and lives of people on the streets.... I couldn't take any more pictures.

    The people looked exactly the same as civilian 'survivors' in a war zone.


    And I don't think any "earthquake putty" would have stopped stuff from being
    thrown about in that one :-)

    Did you know that the Ocotilla quake is thought to be an aftershock of the
    Easter Sunday Sierra El Mayor (Baja) quake?

    Yes, I knew that at the time we were shaking. Aftershocks can continue
    for years after the initial earthquake. This one was just wayyyy
    closer to home.
