I am about 100 miles from the epicenter. There is just desert and a few mountains between us and the epicenter. No damage for us, just a lot of rolling and shaking. They are now saying yesterday's quake was a fore shock of tonight's quake. Yesterday was a 6.4, tonight's is 6.9 - 7.1. Tonight's was much stronger and lasted longer. Plus, we actually felt more of the aftershocks this time where we are.

I think Libertygranny & CrowGirl are the closest. KetchupQueen has probably been feeling them Ė she is in the Pasadena area.

The epicenter, near Ridgecrest, is about 100 miles east of Bakersfield. Ridgecrest is a fair-sized town with a naval R&D facility as its major employer, but the whole area is basically rural.

I have not felt any of them. Boardmadd isnít too far from me (if he is still in the same place). We are on the San Francisco Peninsula. I heard reports on the news of people feeling the quakes from as far as Sacramento, San Jose, Las Vegas, even Mexico. I donít know how credible all of those reports are, since people can be impressionable and prone to the power of suggestion. But in the immediate area, there have been reports of building damage, fires, and medical calls (that could mean actual injuries, heart attacks, or psychological distress).

Prayers going forth for all the folks affected.

According to his Facebook post from yesterday, Boardmadd was at the LA Convention Center yesterday with DD Amber.
