I live and work in Chino Hills and thought my number was up. Purchased a sleigh bed over a month ago on a whim. Then several weeks later purchased a 37" LCD TV. When I went home to check things out, it was like the footboard caught and held the TV until i got home. Alot of stuff shifted but man I would have cried if my TV was destroyed. But it was only a possession and my dogs, scared but safe, were my main concern. I also felt the strenght of the 94 Northridge quake. Another one of those and I am out of here.

Thirty eight years ago tomorrow (5:59AM, still dark) the Sylmar earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area.

I was nine living in Canoga Park near Saticoy and Fallbrook. Scared the rep points out of me and I started yelling for my mom. The most memorable thing was the loud noise the windows made rattling in their tracks. It was a very warm day (81F at both Point Mugu and Long Beach) in February - probably a Santa Ana event - what some people call "earthquake weather". My school in Malibu (OLM) canceled classes that day. The big concern was the stability of the Van Norman dam in the northern San Fernando Valley. The other big news was the Olive View Hospital damage.

We're two weeks past it, but its been about fifteen years (1994) since the Northridge Quake. Awfully long time has passed since the Southland's had a "major" quake.

Could someone please explain to me why people believe certain weather conditions are considered "earthquake weather"? I'm no geologist but it doesn't seem like there should be any connection between heat/humidity and earthquakes...

Nope, didn't feel a tickle or a tumble!
Must have been a tiny one.
