Not nearly as bad as the 1994 Northridge Earthquake but pretty strong, all the same. Reply lol cookies sound nice :P 30 years a long time + how long was the quake Reply Duration is a hard thing to pin down. the effect of the quake could be shorter or longer depending where you are when it hits. Plus, it always seems longer than it really is. That said, most quakes last from 3-10 seconds, some go on for more but this one felt like a good 25-30 seconds. Reply hehe well hope you and the new born dont have to go through aother Reply We were in Toronto & missed it! Glad to hear there was no damage around SD. I think one sheet of paper landed on the floor in our house as a result of the quake, but then, we might just be messy. :) Reply Had a 5.7 aftershock about an hour and a half ago. Quite strong but not as long. Here’s a MAP and more details. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
