    We just had an earthquake. Early reports put it at 4.7 and just about 8 miles north of here. Here being Petaluma California, about an hour north of San Francisco. The ground here is very soft, high liquefaction rate. After the main shaking stopped things where still sort of wobbling for about half a minuet.

    Bay area quakers sound off.

    As far as I have heard there was no damage of note. It was just strong enough to remind every one we could all be killed at any moment with out warning. California ROCKS! … Literally

    That was no earthquake, that was Michael Bay's giant head hitting the ground when he tripped on the set of his latest movie, The Transformers.

    Seriously though, that's crazy. Even Crazier is that Ohio has been getting hit with tremors every two weeks since Christmas.

    Glad you're ok. Hopefully you were watching a topless woman on her back when the quake hit.
