Ya that was the first one I remember feeling since '89. I was outside and heard cracks and creeks then the shaking started. That surely got my heart pumping!!!

We just moved here from Kentucky and have never experienced an earthquake. This was definitely a first for our family. We were all pretty shaken up by it.

That was just a baby quake, and another reminder that we all need to have a earthquake kit. If the big one hits there is a chance you wont see city help for over 72 hours. "shake baby shake"

Quite a shaker though very brief. I'm still finding items here and there that fell over. Time to get prepared for...(don't even want to talk about it!)

Don't miss out on the discussion!
