    6.3 earthquake strikes off California coast

    A violent earthquake struck early Friday morning off the coast of California, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.


    The magnitude 6.3 quake struck at a depth of 6 miles, about 163 miles southwest of the nearest city, Avalon, on California’s Santa Catalina Island, at 2:36 a.m. PT (5:36 a.m. ET), the USGS said.
    Earlier reports indicated that two earthquakes struck 17 seconds apart, but the USGS later confirmed that only one quake occurred.

    Hope our West Coast friends are ok.

    So far so good...I was asleep, and didn't feel it, and to be honest, it was a long distance from me and under water, so I don't think a lot of folks felt it. No damage has been reported so far, and as long as this is not a foreshock, I'll be happy.

    Still, as usual, when there's a large EQ nearby, I will go through and double check my supplies...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    I didn't feel it, either and I'm in North San Diego County about 2 miles from the beach. If only I'd not finally fallen asleep at 2am!

    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Oh good my niece is in San Diego, she also lives close to the beach, I don't know how close. Did you get any kind of Tsunami warning? I'll call her later just to make sure, they are all alright. I thought 6.3 was pretty big? Hope everyone came out with no injuries and little or no damage.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    6.3 is pretty big, but when it's offshore, it isn't always felt on land. And, from what I've read, it was fairly shallow, which also lessens the ability to feel it (less mass to travel through, and less mass to adjust/shake).
