Yikes. I was sitting outside with Cassie and suddenly felt the strong earthquake. No damage but my equilibrium is still off. Got txts from family in different areas who felt it too. Its amazing how we felt it even though it was in the desert. Weirdest feeling. Nothing broke thankfully. Hopefully no bad after shocks. The TV channels are reporting on it.

Cassie didnt act negatively which is interesting.
We've been through a 6.9 some years ago . At that time it did lots of damage to my parents home, broken windows, structural, and more.

The news are saying how people should have an emergency kit and water. It makes me laugh because I'm a mini-prepper.... i have lots of pre-prepped document binders, food, water etc. During our recent evacuation it all came in handy.

It's a good idea. We had a house fire (sort of; the house attached to ours caught fire (semi-detached)) and while we were fine it made us realize we needed to up our game.

There are many great examples on the internet for preparing an emergency binder. I bought a 3" binder, plastic sleeves, and dividers and a little at a time made my "pick up and go " binder. I have documents for Cassie in it as well. I heard that evacuation shelters wont allow dogs without proof of current vaccinations.

Oh good point! I hadn't thought of that. We have their rabies tags but that's the only vaccine tag.

Yikes! So glad you are okay. It does throw you off, I remember we had a small earthquake and it still felt very weird. The dogs were freaking out before it happened.

Oh no girlfriend...we will not be returning east. We actually prefer earthquakes to snow storms, tornadoes. and hurricanes. We have a well built house and have survived many earthquakes. And heck, we have earthquake insurance...lol. hope we never have a claim. The seismologists say now we could have a bigger one and this has triggered a cycle of earthquakes for years. Cassie whined a little during the 7.1.
I asked my husband if the earth moved for him... heehee.

Glad you all are okay! /forums/images/smilies/biggrin.gif I hope any after shocks don't go up to an 8 /forums/images/smilies/eek.gif

Thanks. We're 118miles or a 2hr ride from the epicenter.. Caltech said after the 6.4 that we had a chance of a bigger one in a few days ...I didn't believe it. Now they say we could have a bigger than 7.1 soon. We didnt have any damage or things falling...whew. It does give the inner ear a shaking which makes you dizzy for quite awhile.
Im very prepared with food and water and documents.
