    Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.

    Thanks Yoda! I just started a thread on it after I checked the USGS site. Are you in the Bay Area? Woke me up.

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

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

    It only lasted 2-3 sec, but I can't go back to sleep. Afraid of aftershocks. Earthquakes terrify me because I've been in a couple of large ones in my life. I was 45 min. away from the epicenter of this one, but it was large enough to wake me up after only going to sleep about 20 min. before. I'm a light sleeper anyway. No damage here that I can tell. Dog slept through it. DD woke up, I woke hubby up, but they all went back to sleep.
    American Canyon is very close to Napa, CA- wine country- 6mi. South. Best way to describe location. Above S.F. Hit around 3:20a.m. PST
    A few friends near me also reporting it on Facebook.

    Thanks! We already take earthquake precautions- they used to have dedicated stores- strapping down large furniture, water heater, no glass on shelves, or cemented down, bottled water on hand...

    Don't know, I didn't call. Only checked USGS and CNN.
    They've reported power is out in Solano County- where American Canyon is located. It was felt as far south in the Bay Area as Mountain View. My niece contacted me on Facebook and they felt it.

    Arrow

    It was a side-side shaking and it was loud, sounded like the ceiling fan was shaking. No aftershocks so far, almost one hour after.

    Glad you are safe Linask! Earthquakes scare me more than hurricanes or tornadoes. At least you have warning with hurricanes and tornadoes and can take action to protect yourself and family...earthquakes are just BOOM!

    My opinion and nothing but my opinion.

    Tor:Con Index link below. Will show you the probability of a tornado happening in your area.
    http://www.weather.com/news/tornado-torcon-index

    FEMA's link for Emergency Supplies list below or what you need to survive for three days in case help is not immediately available to you.
    http://www.ready.gov/document/family-supply-list

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.
