    I'm not the only one here that got hit by it right?

    Damn that sucked. My room was pretty much the only one that had anything get knocked over. All my Animated TFs, Masterpiece Megatron, a lot of stuff on my shelves. And I just cleaned my room too -_-.

    A big expensive 3-wick candle holder was destroyed downstairs. About it. Nothing in my sister's room, little in my mom's room.

    And it woke me up, went to bed at like 7/7:30, get woke up by violent shaking like 4 hours later. That kinda sucked.

    And the tv downstairs turned itself on while I was cleaning up....

    Just glad I'm alright and the damage doesn't seem to bad here. Hearing some sirens though, that's not so good..

    Well I hope you're okay as well as your family. Where I live earthquakes are barely noticable in Nebraska. So stay safe.

    Twenty or some odd seconds of shaking here. A few things fell over, but nothing major and no damage. The phone isn't working though.

    My workplace was briefly evacuated after the earthquake. It didn't feel too strong but it's still better to leave as a precaution.

    It shook pretty good over here but no damage. My cat tripped out and stood in the hallway with not knowing what to do. LOL.

    I work on the 6th floor of an office building in East L.A., near the epicenter. So at around 11:47 the guy next to me asks me why the hell I keep kicking his desk. But I wasn't kicking it. Then the fun shaking starts.--The whole building. Lasted maybe 10-15 seconds I think. Luckily no one was hurt and damage appears to be minimal. We evacuated the building for a little bit then went back. I heard some water pipes nearby burst. I can't wait to go home and see how many TFs fell over. My cat must be freaking out. Mr. Roboto called and told me to tell you guys not to worry, he is safe and sound... Better luck next time mother nature! :mad

    The closer to the epicenter, stronger is feels. Exceptions are the rock the foundation is laying on.

    I was at work. We felt it. I loved it. I't been a while. But it is fun until something bigger happens.

    I hope it wasn't a warning for something "big" will happen, as much as the one in 2001.

    I was at work helping out a guest with a purchase/rental. Next thing I know it starts shaking and I grab onto something. I told my guest to hang onto something while my manager was rolling around in the desk and seeing things fall off shelves. For that moment, I was scared that something hanging from the ceiling were going to fall and hit me. I just got home and it looks like my TF collection is safe. :D

    We had a very small one a while back here in Canada. It was so weird. My brother and I were playing video games and everything shook for a few seconds and I though he moved my bed (I had my feet on it and he was sitting on the bed) but he said he thought I moved it.
