  • Strong California quake causes injuries, damage

    A 6.0-magnitude quake struck early Sunday about 6 miles from the city of Napa.

    That's not far from where we went on vacation.

    I hope all our Nor Cal people are okay (eb and Jake?).

          I guess you could feel it here last night, but I slept through it.

            Okay here. That's where I grew up, so I still have a lot of friends there who took a lot of damamge. They're all okay, just working on putting it all back together.

            Yeah... "slept" through it... me too! Eddie and I went a little hard in the paint and at some point(after we cleaned out the ice chest) we fell asleep.

                    In the early 2000s (can't remember the exact year), in spring, I was on business in San Francisco, and a 5.0 or 5.1 hit the area. My colleague was in another room, and felt it, whereas I did not. It was on the news just as he called me to see what was happening. It did some damage, but I don't recall it being too bad overall. The thing I remember however is that I did worry a bit about the possibility of some impactful aftershocks.

                    Years later, while on vacation in Huatulco, Mexico, my wife and I felt an earthquake. This is an area familiar with "bumps". It was minor, but apparently there have been some of much larger impact. A guy I know was there when there were tsunami warnings.

                    My wife and I were quite interested in trying to get in a trip to San Franciso just a few weeks back. We had a week in mind (that fit just right), and because we thought about it with not a lot of time to spare, we planned on arriving there on Saturday. But in the end we did not have a good feeling for tour availability (after trying to book), so we decided to defer our trip for another time, when we have more planning time.

                    Had we gone, I guess we would have felt this earthquake, while sleeping. An earthquake of this magnitude is pretty intense. I am no expert but when you get around 6 or more, it seems pretty significant.

                    Clearly there is some serious damage this time. I believe no one lost their life over it, but still, a lot of injuries. That's too bad. I hope they're all ok.

                      If you were going to stay in San Fran you might not have felt it.

                        I agree, probably wouldn't have felt it in San Fran

                          A guy who writes for the newspaper here said his son is in San Fran and left a message that it was a little shaky and weird overnight. I took that too mean he felt it.
