Earthquake!!!
 
Man that was a long one! I am a little motion sick

Old Hickory 06-16-2005 04:00 PM

5.3 centered near Yucaipa. I hope everyone here is ok

Edit- There was an aftershock immediately afterwards. That's why it felt so long

About 80 miles east of Los Angeles.

Yucaipa is closer to Palm Springs, so I would say 120 miles from LA and 80 or so from Anaheim

Well, the new construction of buildings in warner center on rollers sure works well :eek: 5th and top floor of the LNR buildings, and we rolled for almost a good 2 minutes. I was not feeling very well after that, the windows were pitching and the cube's were moving, I was not a happy camper. You would have thought the darn thing was in the valley we shook so hard and long!

I was at Work at Lamps Plus in Upland and I was in the stock room. I started to hear the roof move and then it really dawned on me what was happening. So I got the hell out of the stock room. So I ran onto the floor. Not really better considering all the Chandelier's were swaying. But I was mostly in the doorway. I didn't want anything from stock to fall on my head nor a fan. All the Customers freaked one tried to duck under a bulb tower. The people were freaked out there. Our manager ran out of the office basically bypassing fellow employees.

Better run for the hills and hide because of a possible tsunami!

I was in Corona and in my office when it started to rattle. Being that this was about the 100th of these I've been in within the last 29 years, I was pretty calm. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for some of my halfwitted co-workers.

Women tend to get a little shaken (no pun intended) but you would be amazed at how many people don't know common sense about earthquakes and who live in California. There are two things about California you need to learn when you come in.

First, Spanish. Learn Spanish or be inferior. I am still amazed that they even give the option of teaching French to kids in SoCal anymore. If you take French in HS and you live in California, you should be promptly exited from the state to Quebec or that general region, where the language WILL HELP YOU GET BY! Secondly, earthquake safety is one of the easiest lessons to learn. I saw a lady yesterday, in her early 50's in my office, spinning around like a top when the quake was happening. When she came around on one pass, I told her to get under a doorway. She looked at me as if I had asked her to explain the Treaty of Versailles in less than 10 seconds. When she did not respond quickly and the spinning continued, I lost it a little bit and said, "Get under the F#$%ing doorway, Linda!" At that point she moved to a safer area. I had to do this with several people who were so ******** they just kind of sat there, deer in headlights style. Funny thing is, these are lifelong So Cal people. Didn't we learn to get under a desk or in a doorway when we are like 5 years old? Anyway, I think if I can use some cleaner language, I might be promoted to Official Earthquake Safety Guy based on what some people thought was my specific "expertise" in this field.

I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks (or slightly less intelligent dogs as well)
:D

I hear ya...but sometimes stress does certain things to people...It may very well that Linda knew what to do when an earthquake comes but she was so stressed that its happening that she couldn't really make sense of it all and make the appropriate action.

During the Northridge quake I was freaking out. I knew what to do.. I learned how to duck and cover in elementary school.. or to stand under a doorway.. but my mind went blank and I started screaming and holding on for dear life. lol

The Nortridge quake freaked me out because I kept getting out of bed to run for cover and the rollnig waves kept knocking me back in to bed.

nikolai19 06-17-2005 04:11 PM

In the Northridge quake, we sat in a car outside for about an hour. I guess the little ones I'm just used to and I figure everyone knows what to do. What scares me is that people don't know what to do in natural disasters and they end up getting hurt. I was yelling at people in this case because I don't want to see someone get hurt, especially when it could be prevented. The thing with earthquakes is sometimes they gain momentum. So you really don't know if it's a 7.5 or a 5.5.

Not poking fun at people, I would just try to be as educated as possible with natural disasters i.e. fire, rain, earthquakes, tsunamis (think of how many people could have been saved if they knew to try and move to higher ground, if possible.)
