Just experienced a strong shake about twenty minutes or so ago. Definite rocking motion as the secondary wave rolled through - very much like being at sea.

Apparently the epicenter is near Ridgecrest, CA. A magnitude 6.4.

Russ (and other SoCalers), did you feel it?

There was also a 6.2 quake up here this morning. However it was too far offshore to be felt where I live, but some right near the coast felt a bit of the shake apparently.

In case any one is wondering. Haida Gwaii is phonetically pronounced as Hi-da Gwuy (like guy with a hard Gw at the start.)

California earthquake brings scattered damage.

Los Angeles (CNN)An earthquake with an early measure of magnitude 6.4 hit Southern California -- about 150 miles northeast of Los Angeles -- on Thursday morning, according to the US Geological Survey.
Reports of scattered damage, including rock slides and fires, rolled in by midday.
At least four large aftershocks have been recorded, measuring 4.7, 3.5, 3.8 and 4.2 magnitude, officials said.
The earthquake was felt in central Los Angeles as a long, rolling quake, making buildings rock back and forth for at least several seconds.

Yep, 7.1 Quake Rocks SoCal. Again, didnít feel it. Too far. Check the aftershocks link above, it keeps updating.

We felt a repeat of the day before, although a bit longer and bigger. Our utilities were not interrupted, and we watched TV as Dr. Jones gave her usual superb explanation of the situation. Stayed up past my usual bedtime.

No point in grabbing the BOB. If you are close to the epicenter, you may have damage of some sort or another to deal with, and you have resources close at hand. Even this incident was over in less than a minute, and life, for us, returned to normal. Probably not so for Ridgecrest.
