Living in Cali. [week 6] EarthQuake

pic totally unrelated

So today was my 1st experience ever, to feel a real earthquake. It was a….. an undescribed experience for me, who has been living in a free quake country Malaysia.

The quake that shakes South California today was at scale 5.x magnitude. At that time, i was in a meeting on the 2nd floor.

The strongest shake was felt around noon for like a minute or two. My superiors continued the meeting for the lulz ¯\(º_o)/¯ According to my colleagues, this is the stronges over the years. Maybe I should consider to get a life insurance ▿_▿

    I heard about that.
    The good thing is I live in Northern California.

    Earthquake free SG here as well. Meh I would not like to experience a bad one. A volcanic eruption is something else.

    And the news is showing of the aftermath, and the possibility of another bigger ones. Now im scared of getting crumbled under piles of bricks.
    Oh shi~

    thanks god u r ok. but 5.x should be okay. i would be surprised if anyone gets hurt in California at scale 5.x magnitude earthquake.

    I will be ducking undercover in any place I can or running out into open space.
    I never experienced one for real but when I do, I don’t think I will do that but instead panic for the sake of which I may die. @_@

    Thanks for the tips and concerns guys.
    KTLA morning programme did have some survival tips aired. And yes, ducking under table is in the list too.

    The shake in LF/Irvine was weaker than in LA. It should be lower than 5. Since most building is having wooden floor, its difficult for me to differentiate a quake or someone stomping around hard @_@

    up here in northern cali it’s been awhile since anything’s really scary… although we do have quite a history ^^;; nothing i’d worry about though… too infrequent to really do anything but stock up on emergency supplies if you’re living here…

    Hah! My family and I went down to LA for vacation when it happened. We happened to be in a building designed specifically to withstand the stuff. It was pretty fun from my end. I mean, obviously people who were hurt/had things damaged wouldn’t think so, but from where I was it was just kinda funny.
