I was in a 3 story office building in Woodland Hills in the San Fernando Valley, and at first there was some slight movement, but within a few seconds it went into full blown rolling. You should have seen the look on some people's faces.

I live 45 minutes South of the area where it originated from and it was pretty strong. My whole house shook for 12-15 seconds. This one was longer than the others I have felt before.

The "weird" thing is that when an earthquake first happens- you don't realize it until it's done- they normally last for 3-5 seconds.

Get all of the boats out of the buildings. Hell with the heirlooms and portraits.

Seriously, hope everyone is all right.

Admit you have gas Bubba. It's like trying to blame the dog.

Glad to hear everyone is ok

I was in south OC (Santa Margarita) at my desk and the tilt up building started shaking but I guess I'm so used to them I didn't even stop working. It kept shaking so I figured I guess I should go outside or something but then it stopped. After Northridge, this was nothing!
