      Hi girls.. everyone in CA is fine.

      There was no major damage.. I'm working in Malibu and we felt it here.. it seemed to last forever! (20 seconds or so) My co-workers made fun of me for getting under my desk but once stuff started falling off my shelf, I figured it was my duty to protect my baby bean! :)

      It was felt all over Southern CA so pretty big shaker. I haven't felt any aftershocks.

        angela, see elementary school drills worked! so glad you and bean are OK.

        catherine, i would wait to go out until you get an all clear. cali has been known to have aftershocks bigger than the earthquake itself. also sometimes people get a little riot-y in hysteria causing situations.

          an aftershock is just what they call the subsequent earthquakes that happen soon after the first big one that people notice.

              An after shock are small (usually smaller than the 1st) earth quakes that continue for about 24 hours. If you are in an earth quake and you are inside a building the best place for you to be is in a door jam it is the strongest part of a building.
