    I was driving at the time but a few friends felt it good here in Fresno. We are about 250 north of LA. The epicenter was in Ridgecrest . That's between Fresno and LA towards the east.

    Family says they felt it here in Las Vegas - farther west then I live in Henderson. Coming from SoCal originally, anything less than 7.0 is just a "shaker" for the people that have lived there most of their lives. I lived thru 4 major quakes when I lived there before '88 when I moved to Vegas.

    8:19 this evening, just a few minutes ago, 7.1 outside of Ridgecrest again. Water in our swimming pool was splashing out the sides. We felt this one.

    Whoo-Hoo, sure felt last nights "rollercoaster" trembler coming from mid California. 1st one on the 4th didn't feel it but last nights event was an long forgotten experience for me, a former resident of SoCal.

    Kurt, I was on the bottom floor of the eight story Standard Oil building, downtown LA, when the Sylmar quake hit - wasn't too sure I was going to make it out alive. A lot of that building came apart (built in the late 20's). We found glass water bottles 30' down the hallway after we started to inspect stuff - elevator shafts collapsed completely, shelving on the 8th was all twisted out of shape and the files boxes were scattered every where.

    That was NOT a fun ride for me and the people inside that morning . . .

    Lots of rolling motion here. A couple of days ago, I was under the roadster and wondered how fast I could get out of there, if an earthquake hit?

    We live about 200-miles from the epicenter and haven’t felt a thing in our house. We’ve got some neighbors who’s homes are slab on grade that have felt the larger quakes.

    Well, I'm sure glad to hear that no members suffered any damage from them.

    Cobrajj, I worry about being under the roadster, and it slipping off the jack stands, every time I'm under it, so an added earthquake would not be reassuring..

    So Ray, your house is built on a perimeter foundation? is that because you have a basement?

    Bill,

    Perimeter foundation crawlspace. No basement. Our insurance co. keeps trying to sell us earthquake ins but we keep telling them, "The house was built in 1939 and I'm sure it's been through a number of earthquakes."

    i know earthquake coverage is expensive here..I can't imagine what it must cost in California..
    The insurance office is more likely to collapse, then your 1939 home..

    Bill, we have this program here: https://www.earthquakeauthority.com/

    The rates really aren’t that bad but the deductibles are scary high.

    House insurance is important to have, but what a racket. There is so many exclusions from this, or that, or, perils not covered, listed in the fine print.
    The latest thing my insurance company has done, is to remove the 100% replacement cost coverage, on roof and siding. Apparently it's because of high incidents of wind, and hail damage over the last few years in N. America. They basically pro-rate them now, depending on their age. They will only pay up to a max. of 50%, on a roof or siding, 20 years or older.
    Now I understand that some roofing materials at 20 years, are often getting close to needing replacement, so that is somewhat fair ...But the roof's underlying structure, framing, sheathing, etc. shouldn't be subject to being pro-rated. Also, certain types of roofing material, and some siding materials, will last for 50 years plus.

    I needed clarification on some of the policy wording, because it is so open to interpretation. I asked my agent, "If the wind blows my roof off, I am now subject to this new pro-rating system?"... He said "Yes". I then asked, "Now if a tree falls on my roof, and damages it, am I subject to the pro-rating?". He said, "No, that is classified as damage from a falling object".. As I was breathing a sigh of relief, as I have around 70 very large trees on my property. he continues.."...unless the tree was blown over by the wind.."

    You just can't win..lol
