There was a 5.3 earthquake today here in Southern California. Started approx. at around 9:13 PM as soon as the seismograph picked it up, and ended around 9:15. Two minutes. Almost a good two minutes. I think that is the longest, and biggest, quake we had so far in years. In my opinion at least. It was even widespread too. From the Inlands to the Coast, it was that spread out. Experts are saying we will be having another one soon. When? We don't know. But they do say to be prepared since we apparently overdue for some big quakes. I'm not terrified, but I am hugely concerned for my family, friends, and my beardies. As for my stuff...gah...I have a bad habit of attaching myself to items so it's going to hurt if they break during a big one. But I am prepared for that. After all, they're telling me to not be concerned for them
We are OK though. I checked the news as soon as the quake was done and the reporters are saying that there were no major damage and no one was hurt.
