We're still standing after the 7.2 earthquake that happened on Easter Sunday. The epicenter was a couple hundred miles east of us. Fortunately, no damage here and nobody was hurt. Not even a single broken tile!
The experienced earthquake veterans didn't break a sweat. Melinda, a California native, described it as "...one of those rolling ones, not the shaky-shaky kind." Kathy thought it was "Awesome!" Even though she's been in California for almost 17 years, it was the strongest one she's ever felt.
It is a good reminder to us all to get prepared for that big one that will inevitably happen. Some links:
USGS - Lots of good links about preparation.
Quake Quiz - Test your knowledge - really fun animations. When you get the wrong answer, they give you a good shake.
LA County Department of Animal Care & Control - Great tips on making preparations to keep your pets safe.
