Earthquake

Wife is fine. Parents are fine. Right now it's being called a 5.8 based in Chino Hills. About 45-60 seconds of movement. Still in downtown LA.

(waiting to hear no sympathy from jumbach =)

Oh, good. It was shallow (12km).

What zip code do you work in?

OK. For some reason I thought you'd been redeployed somewhere to the south.

I remember feeling the one in Ontario that was, what 5.6? back in 1989 or 1990. I was on the 12th floor of a building that had been built in like 1910, theoretically reinforced. I felt the initial P waves, announced "earthquake", then about 2 seconds later the S waves arrived.

Funny thing is, last night both Dione and I had dreams about an earthquake. I thought it was so coincidental that I was wondering if we slept through one. Checking the usgs.gov site, I see that nothing had hit Reno that we would have felt.

Now, this happens. Random coincidence.
