  • We sure did. Heard it coming, and it felt as though it came from your direction!

  • I must have been the only one that didn’t feel this lol

  • Yes we felt it. It looks like it’s epicenter was pretty close to us. Our clock read 6:20 so it looks like our clocks are not syncrinized because I don’t think it took 5 minutes to cross the creek.

  • We felt two sharp thrusts in Benbow. The first one lasted about 3 seconds, followed in a few seconds by another thrust of about three seconds. The vibrations were sharp and straight up and down, no sideways movement. Only caused a few things to rattle, Including the dogs nerves. She immediately went in to “Coon Hunt Mode”.

  • I woke up to one thump (that I’m aware of). This SoCal born just assumed it was the cat and went back to sleep.

  • I was working late last night, so I decided to sleep in my glass shop instead of driving home half-asleep…I woke this morning to glass in the display cases shaking around. I knew what was happening. I lay there still, waiting for the motion to get worse before jumping out of bed…heh. It stopped and I fell back asleep.

    As if I didn’t have enough on my to do list this week, now I gotta add earthquake-proof the glass studio! At least I got a warning shot. I’d hate to wake to the big kilns laying broken on the ground, not to mention my glass art collection!!! I better get to fixing…

  • Thanks for the data kym. Sounds like it was 18 miles under my friends the Mc Bride’s place near Myer’s. It sure woke them. I slept right through it here at Schill Hill.

  • Didn’t feel anything up here, but at 2.7, I wouldn’t expect to feel it from this far away.

  • Tell that guy in the photo to get down off that rock. He might fall down and hurt himself.

  • I didn’t feel a thing in Fortuna.
    I like our Earthquakes. The little ones mean the faults are letting off steam which is a good thing.

    Hang in there and hold on everyone!

    • Whale Gulch fault? Yikes! Look at the Shelter Cove faults! I thought the Russ Fault went to Rio Dell. It was the source of the Ferndale quake. Good map!
