The topic: Whoa...
A moderate earthquake occurred at 8:41:46 AM (PDT) on Sunday, June 12, 2005.
The magnitude 5.6 event occurred 9 km (6 miles) ESE of Anza, CA.
The hypocentral depth is 14 km ( 8 miles).
I heard it coming. I heard it coming for a long time (for earthquakes). I actually had enough time to think about it before it hit. "What's that noise? Are they working on an aircraft over at the local airfield? Or is it an earthquake?" and then it hit. The place rattled for a few seconds, then it was gone. And I heard it rumble off into the distance.
The cats scattered. Not all of them. Some of them are cool under pressure. But enough of them scattered (along with me) that it was pretty funny around here.
A few minutes after it had passed, my mom called asking if we were okay.
It was a pretty decent quake for having a center over seventy miles away.
