  3. Almost an hour and everyone in the office is still talking about it. It felt awesome and reminds you how powerless you are! Now they are saying it's a 5.4.

  4. I moved here from the east coast 6 months ago and just a few minutes ago I was in my pool when the earth started shaking. My first earthquake! WTF?

  5. I'm in a downtown LA high-rise and it rolled quite a bit over here. Not bad! I've lived here my whole life and this was pretty much garden variety.

    Certainly mother nature is under-achieving on the earthquake front.

  7. It was not that bad of an earthquake. No damaged glass or anything for myself 7.5 miles from Chino Hills. It was around 20 seconds of tremors.

  10. @THE QUEEN,

    I did too, my girl said it was bad. She giggled. They are scared. Like I said-let's see what happens. hopefully nothing.

  11. I'm watching the L.A. news. They've said repeatedly...no damage, no injuries, no deaths.
    Please do not spread false rumors Matt.

  12. In Santa Barbara. Felt the waves and the sways, but no damage here, just alot of raw nerves. Hope everyone is okay.

  13. My comment should have been directed to Otto. Sorry Matt.

  14. I should have said, when she 'giggles', she is VERY upset.

  15. A big jolt here in Costa Mesa, CA (Orange County) but no damage as far as I can determine. I haven't seen any reports of deaths which are directly attributable. A spokesman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office said there were no reports of injuries in the Chino Hills area - which was the epicenter of this particular event.

  16. My mom lives in Claremont, CA. She said everything seems to be okay just no power for right now

  17. @DEZBOY,

    Doing nothing like that. This is a blog...when you get information, you post it. I certainly am not in the business of 'spreading rumours'. I hope that the information that I got is incorrect. Don't judge so quickly.

    Posted by: OTTO | Jul 29, 2008 3:50:34 PM

  18. i'm about 30 mi. away and it went on for a good 30 seconds.

  19. Fox news is saying that phones are down in LA-true?

    Posted by: OTTO | Jul 29, 2008 3:59:48 PM

  20. @otto: currently the phone lines are being maxed out by the sheer number of callers but soon after the quake I couldn't get my landline to work for a good half hour.

  21. I will correct myself DEZBOY. I work in Atlanta at a major news network. Believe it or not-we are not always correct. Thank God we were wrong. We just go by the news on the 'ground'.

    Posted by: Otto | Jul 29, 2008 4:04:01 PM

  22. OTTO, I think you just figured out your own problem... you're watching Fox News.

  23. I wish it had toppled the Kardashians house.

    It'll be fun to watch them air clips of it on Big Brother.

    Posted by: Dan B | Jul 29, 2008 4:11:28 PM

  24. Touche Crispy.

    I'm just flipping. Trust me when I say, Faux News is not my #1.

    Good try though.

  25. otto:

    cell phones were scrambled for a little while - i was able to receive a text but could not reply - but they seem to be working again. there was no problem at all with landlines.
