Checking to see if anyone was close to the earthquake or had friends/relatives close to it and, if so, if they’re okay. \n\nIf you hadn’t heard, California’s 4th of July and now the 5th has had quite a shake-up. The epicenter is located in the middle part of Southern California. Yesterday it was hit by a 6.4, tonight it got a larger jolt of 7.1...which is big! These were followed by a bunch of smaller aftershocks. The shakes from these have been felt as far as Nevada and Mexico. I live about 200 miles away and I really felt it both yesterday and today. The blinds swayed, dishes and windows rattled, and everything rocked, gently but unsettlingly, for nearly a minute. Which is a long time if you’re in the middle of an earthquake.\n\nI’m fine and nothing got thrown off shelves or broke. But even though we’re getting the “mild” side of this, it’s still scary.\n\nIf you were in range of this quake, please check in and let us know how you’re doing.
