Sierra is closer to Reno Navada..quite a long ways from the Coast. It was close to the Oregon/Ca border. We are both in North...Central Ca. she is north east of me, here in Sacramento.

The quake is about 5 or 6 hours north of here.

Thanks for the concern, mish. I did not feel a thing being so far from the coast. When the Cape Mendocino/Ferndale earthquake hit in the Spring of '92 I was living in Arcata, CA. That earthquake measured 7.2 on the reichter scale. The two major aftershocks were in the high 6.0s.

Here is some information on yesterday's earthquake.

So glad you're okay, Sierra.

Don't think I'll ever forget the Northridge quake & the devastation. This has been one heck of a week.
