Yeah it relieves the pressure on all the different fault lines.
I live in Lancaster and didnt feel anything. Must be immune to the damn things.
The one that got me the most was the 6.8 in Seattle in 01. At a stop light and my car starts going wild. Look over to see a land yacht of a mid 70s cadillac dancing like its on hyraulics. Get back to my shop all my guys are freaked out having never been through one and they get a whopper of one. I was thinking to myself I moved here to get away from earthquakes and now this?
Lancaster eh? im in palmdale...
My sister felt it pretty good in her dorm room in Long Beach. she called us freaking out.
