Default wow that was a pretty big quake.

It happen at 3:21am. Not sure if the quake woke me up or I was already awake a few second before it happen. Well back to sleep for me, will check to see how big was the quake tomorrow morning.

That is cool, I think there was a big car wreck down the street from me last night. Never a dull moment.

Not sure how a car wreck is comparable to a quake.

It appears it was a 6.0 from the early reports.

From the way he sounded it wasn't very big. If there is a big quake in LA most people don't go to bed immediately after the quake.

Edit: There was a 6.2 Magnitude quake in Iran/Iraq border. Its amazing the difference. The town in Iraq is almost completely demolished.

You're right. Someone probably died in the crash and not in the quake.

Lots of stuff fell off shelves and broke here. Sure rattled my nerves but the kids slept right through it. Listening to scanner, a few fires and structural damage around town (Napa).

No one cares about your earthquake. Apparently there was a car crash in Massachusetts.

From the way it sounded someone did. The car was going so fast up the street, lost control & lliterally exploded when it hit the oncoming car...

Interested in seeing the news paper tomorrow.
