Seriously. It may have knocked over a kid's lincoln log tower, but that's probably it.

Even though our buildings aren't engineered for earthquakes, they're engineered to withstand things like that.

If you don't feel an earthquake unless you're at the top of a tall building, it's not an earthquake.

I didn't feel anything, and I work just few blocks from Cadillac Lofts...

A resident at the Cadillac Lofts in downtown San Antonio said the apartment complex felt like it was swaying during the tremor.

Donít put that priceless glassware back on the shelf just yet. There may be aftershocks in the next few days.

I was on the road, didn't feel squat since I was too busy dealing with the daily traffic jam that is 1604.

A friend of mine was doing 60 on a highway when the 1989 San Francisco earthquake struck. He said the car started getting all wobbly like all four wheels had gotten flat. He didn't know it was an earthquake until he pulled over and the wobbling continued - that and the fact that everyone pulled over as well. The suspension kept everyone from feeling the full brunt of a 6.9er.
