Glad you guys are ok.....I don't miss those! JKath I was in the Northridge earthquake 93.....I was 5 mins from the center......was burried in my bedroom and litterally had to lift and dig my way out! A large dresser with tv fell on top of me along with everything else ( the way the earth rolled every centered in the center of the room....anyway I got out but couldnt walk for about a week!
A family friend had a 3 story apartment collapse on her but thank God she was pinned under a closet door that saved her life!
93 was a bad one!!

Wow, that's got to be scary. I've only ever experienced one here in Georgia and that was a few years ago. Just enough to ask "What was that?" Freaky feeling. I can't imagine a 5.8!!!!!! I'm so glad y'all are okay!

Heard it on the news as I was typing to Barbara L.
Glad everyone so far is okay.
Closest I've come is the hurricanes, which sound like freight trains, and sonic booms from when space kraft take off and land. They shake the windows, walls and everything on the ground. Spooky feeling.

oh geez! I typed in a mapquest to see how far away Chino Hills really is from here and it's closer than I thought - only 14 miles....no wonder it was so strong!

roadfix - thanks for posting that!!!
I noticed there's a guy standing there (in the upper left hand corner) - can you imagine if he were in the middle of those aisles? yikes!
