TV News says a warning has gone out for possible more earthquakes.   Tough 4th of July out there.

Was sitting at my desk and watching the 4th of July parade here in our apt complex when the blinds started to slowly sway, and I could feel the room swaying a bit. No shaking, just slow swaying. 

We've had small quakes in our area here near Riverside CA where I live for the past few months, but, nothing really that big. The biggest was 3.1. I am about 2 hrs or so SE of the quake center so I didn't feel it that much.

The coincidental thing here on the other side of the world is that there was at the same time a 5.2 earthquake close to where I live.  I was sitting at the computer in my 15th floor apartment yesterday and the building swayed three times. Videos showing the aftermath of the California earthquake were shown on the news broadcast here this morning - fires, cleaning up supermarket shelf spills, etc.

One thing about earthquakes.....they are non-discriminating. They don't care who you are, what your political or religious beliefs are, rich or poor, or your ethnic background. Anyone and everyone is fair game.

One did a hell of a lot of damage and caused a lot of lost lives near here in 2008.  It did damage where I was at the time 1000 km away.

Yes....it does seem that China, and Japan, are very prone to earthquakes, just like So. Calif.

Nah. That's just some CINO's slandering their own God.

I was born in Ridgecrest. Glad I don't live there no more....

A second, stronger quake of 7.1 magnitude hit near Ridgecrest at about 8:10 PM Pacific time. It was more swaying than shaking and lasted for about a minute or so. It was stronger and longer than the one yesterday, and it was not an aftershock but a new quake.

Yoda Girl looked at me as if to say, "Why are you moving the house so much?" But, she showed no signs of being scared.

Do you actually live in Ridgecrest? If so, are you familiar with a street called Upjohn? That was the street I lived on as a child in the late 50's.

There was a 7.2 on the 5th and downgraded to a 6.9.  The first one I barely felt, but the one yesterday I definitely felt.

Hoping all are safe. Having been in an earthquake, I can say they are really unpleasant.

I remember a smaller Thanksgiving Day one here in Redding about 20 years ago and its same day aftershock.  Here’s hoping for the best for our fellow citizens in Ridge Crest and Kern County as well as the eastern parts of LA and San Bernardino counties.

I moved to So Cal with my parents as a young girl in 1961 and have experienced several quakes of various magnitudes since that time. The most significant one was the one in Landers. We were living in San Diego just a bit south of downtown San Diego, and the house began to move from side to side as if in slow-mo. But, it was the movements were very big stretches, and the heavy overhead beams in the den room were literally screaming as they were being stretched from side to side. The first one lasted longer than a minute, and the following quakes only lasted several seconds. It was truly the worst quake I can recall.

Some of the comments being posted about this story on fox news are truly disgusting.

I don't watch it at all. But since you asked.

.................................

It would be truly a celebration to watch the 55 electoral votes slide into the ocean. The United States of America could rejoice.

...

What would be more reason to celebrate the 4th of July by watching California slide into the ocean. I live here and even i might go with it I feel America would be a better place without California and its Democrats

...

C'mon, Libbies! Get with the program! Don't like earthquakes? Just pass a law against them. Or better yet, an earthquake tax. Every person each time there's a quake. For the children of illegal immigrants, y'know?

...

I am not adding some of the others, mostly racist garbage.

Weird since the areas hit by the quake are among the more conservative areas of California.  Those of us in Jefferson would be more than willing to stretch our envisioned state down the eastern edge of Ca to include Kern County.

I was laying on my bed reading and felt the house sway a little bit. Makes you feel a little dizzy.
