Run for the hills!
No wait the hills are falling! Run for the wide open spaces with no tall buildings or sharp objects!
I lived not lived in California too long so this was my first real earthquake! Okay, I suppose there are earthquakes here all the time, but this one rattled the plates, caused the light fixtures to sway and vibrated the floor. Actually for a split second I debated whether I should run upstairs and grab the kids or just run outside and save myself. Is that bad? Should I have even considered grabbing the kids?
So it turned out to be a 5.6 magnitude about 85 miles away. So it wasn’t too extreme. But for me (and my first real shaker) it was pretty damn exciting.
