Earthquake!


Los Angeles, CA—7:42 PM--The building I was in began shaking in an up and down movement. Then it was rolling back and forth. Having just eaten I think I’m about to barf it all up.

A check on line with the U.S. Geological Survey Earthquake website I got the details. It was a little rattler in or around Marina Del Rey.

According to various local news sources It seems we were lucky that there were apparently no injuries or damage reported.

See what the UDGS has to say.

Update: My dinner just got flushed. It was like I was seasick.

There were temporary river waterfalls where the Mississippi ran backwards during 1811-12 earthquakes. It happened early on Feb. 7, 1812, when a thrust fault created a sudden dam several feet high in the bottom of the river loop near New Madrid. Missouri is not safe either.
