LOL...yeah, we posted at the same time, it seems. I'm on the ground floor so I just got a sharp jolt, no rolling or swaying the like the Easter quake. Still, the building made some funny noises....

Apparently I'm the only one that *didn't* feel it here. Darn.

I'll be out in the desert near Yuma all weekend. Wonder if it'll be rockin' and rollin' out there?

I felt a jolt, then some gentle rolling, lasted about 5 seconds or so. Kind of cool actually although not for those who were closer to it.

Yep. I felt a jolt, then some rolling and swaying at the same time - on the 3rd floor. Odd sensation.

Wait until San Diego has a really big earthquake like the Loma Prieta\ San Francisco & Northridge\ Los Angeles earthquakes. Then you will know the full impact of how frightening mother nature can be. Some people left California the very day these earthquakes hit, vowing to never return.

This is exactly what me and serveral others have been saying. SD has no clue that 1. a large quake is going to impact this city one day and 2. because of this SD is not mentally prepared for it.

I think all San Diegans are well aware that a major earthquake can cause serious damage. We don't need to suffer through one, to get the point.
