I was having a nap and suddenly I was awakened by a loud noise and house shaking. I don't think I have run so fast to get out of the house. Scared the bejesus out of me I am not sure where it came from. We were hit hard back in 2013, a 5.2 then.

All is okay, there doesn't seem to be any damage that I can see anyway.

My sister gets hit with them quite often now in Irving, Texas. She says a lot of times they will sound like really loud thunder. I remember a lot of earthquakes when we lived in southern California, but honestly can't ever remember hearing anything.

Glad things weren't too serious.

Glad you are ok Monique. Your area in the valley are known for some activity.


On the other hand, I don't think you should blame an earthquake for shaking the house when it may have been caused by something else that happens when one naps. Zzzzzzzz's (Know what I mean?)

Glad you have no damage to your home Monique. It is shocking when these occur. It sounds and feels like a truck has run into your house.

We get quakes of a greater magnitude than that if we eat too much hot chili.

I have been through many earthquakes when I lived in the Philippines. My mom's china would start to shake and rattle...we would run outside. Once we were at school and a bad one hit...I sat in back of my friend, she turned around and said to me "stop shaking my chair"..I said I'm not.....at which time we all ran outside....I remember the ground having cracks in it.

Scary stuff going on there GF. Pretty sure I would have felt that one too. Living on the New Madrid fault...we do get the occasional little tremor. Had one about a week ago. Didn't feel that one (3. something). Glad all is well.

Sandy you crack me up.

I was pregnant the first time I experienced an earthquake. We were in southern California when one struck and I was standing at a 'sign-in' window in the X-ray department of the hospital where I worked. All of a sudden one of the file drawers behind me popped out and smacked my rear end and almost popped that kid out three months too soon.

Glad to hear you're OK. We had lots of earthquakes when we lived in Japan. I don't think the earth was ever completely still! It is scary when the earth moves and won't stop!

The one I remember sounded like a car hitting the back side of the house. It was very loud.

In Alaska we had two kinds of quakes, the loud bang kind that was over before you knew it and the long, rumbly kind that rolled and rolled through and you had way too much time to think! I was never in a bad one, thank goodness! They are scary.
