Earthquake! A little Rockin and Rolling in Southern California

Filed in Gather News Channel by on December 30, 2009 0 Comments

I was sitting at my desk going through the email when I felt it around 10:48 this morning. That familiar shake of the ground. I look up and sure enough, the lamp above my head is swinging. It’s an earthquake.

Funny thing is, no one else in my house noticed. So I went to the trust Shakemap and found out it was a 5.9 out of Baja! (I’m in south Orange County.) That was quickly followed by a 4.9. I hear buildings were swaying in San Diego!

Info trickling in but I hope that’s it for today! Even this far away quakes like those make me nervous.
