You won't believe what happened over here a few hours ago. There I was minding my own business in getting something to eat, when all of a sudden the ENTIRE rocked hard like something had hit it, and I nearly lost my balance, and my sister was running as fast as she could to the nearest doorway. We've had earthquakes before in the past, but none of them have hit as hard as this one did. Everybody here is fine, it was just a surprise when it happened, but nearly everything expensive and BREAKABLE we had that's NEVER fallen before when an earthquake hit fell. Some survived the falls but others probably will never be able to fix or are extremely hard to replace.
I live in California. The news said that our area was hit by a 5.0 earthquake, with 3.9 aftershocks in some areas, and they are saying that there might be more coming hours or days from now.
