This one rattled the sliding glass doors on my bedroom. I'm waiting for the aftershock.

Looking at the shakemap of the quake Web Link I seem to be the only one who felt it. On the other hand, I don't think I felt it, I just heard my free hanging sliding glass closet doors rattling loudly. Pretty sensitive earthquake detector.

That's a big government waste of money Web Link The Free Market should take it over and sell ad space on the site.

You with me, Jack?

Felt it. Woke up. Sharp jolt, felt like 15 secs of strong roll. We were up for a while, but heard no sirens, so went back to sleep. But I was up the Peninsula at a friend's, not in MP.
