7.1...

Post by JMG » Mon May 06, 2019 4:20 pm

Just had a 7.1 or 7.2 (depending on where you look) earthquake about 85 miles SE of us. It was wild! I've felt a lot of earthquakes here, but this was by far bigger than any other. We got the kids and got out of the house and had to hold the wall a little bit as we did so. No damage here from what I can tell. Even after we got outside we could still feel it fairly strongly standing on solid ground which is a first for me.

Earthquakes are so weird. It's not a feeling like any other I've had. But anyway, we are all good.

We live so different of lives it’s hard to imagine you’re also on planet Earth.

Thanks be to God that you’ve not been flattened out like the IHOP pancakes you missed yesterday. :)

Yes, quakes are "unsettling." Glad you are all OK.

Looks like the folks who decide these things are settling on 7.2.
Glad you’re okay.
