So I was minding my own business, when suddenly my desk and everything else started to shake. It took me a good 10 seconds to absorb what’s going on (I was at home at that time). It was an earthquake! But just like my past experiences, I didn’t do anything, I didn’t run out of my house. Because all the quakes that I’ve experienced weren’t that big. My rule of thumb on when to escape from building is when things start breaking and ceiling starts crumbling. Okay, I might have to revise my rule of thumb, it could get me killed one day…
Anyways, the quake happened about 45 minutes ago, and occured for about 1 full minutes (at least at my place that’s what happened). The epicenter is quite far from my place, it was at Chino Hills where San Andreas Fault is (I took Geology 100 for GE 😉). To read more about the quake, read at Yahoo! News here.
