Hi I don't live in the west coast but I saw the news and my heart sank for you people in that area (affected by the 7.2, 5.6, 5.3 earthquake). I saw that LA was affected along with AZ and NV. I heard that in LA the buildings were shaking. Please don't laugh at me cause I am not too familar with earthquakes only felt one that sounded like a sonic boom in 2003 when I lived in VA, so I don't know how severe this was for you all. I hope that everyone is okay. Take care

8palmtrees, thanks for your concern. I was on the freeway at the time, so I didn't feel anything. Everything is fine here. San Diegans sure got a nice shake up, though!

Thank you 8palms, that's really sweet.
Our whole apartment had a rolling effect which seemed to last about a minute or less. It literally made us feel dizzy, that's never happened before so it was kind of weird. Nothing fell off the walls. But, it made me think once again, how prepared am I?

I was on Stearn Wharf in Santa Barbara enjoying the day. Didn't even know that it had happened. My wife thought that the wharf was moving more than it should, meaning you can feel extra vibration from the boardwalk. I didn't feel any differant and at the time we didn't even know about the earthquake.

I was outside & did not feel a thing but some people came out to the street looking scared. Overall LA was too far away to feel the worse shaking. A 7.2 can be very dangerous. If the quake had hit closer to Los Angeles it would have been a bigger deal.

I was in IKEA in Burbank with my girlfriend on sunday and i sat down on a couch and noticed that i was shaking slightly. My girlfriend noticed the same. When we got back to her house her mom told us about the quake. We thought it was the escalators.

homes or structures
