EEEAAARRRTTTHHHQQQUUUAAAKKKEEE!!!!!!!!!

About 20 minutes ago, we had an earthquake here in the bay area. Here at my house, it lasted maybe 5 seconds, but I felt it shake the house. Apparently centered 9 miles northeast of San Jose, magnitude 5.6 (that's pretty hefty.)

Earthquakes suck gonorrheal donkey anus. Trust me.

5.6 is moderate...dishes will rattle but not much else (one caller to the TV reported wine bottles falling and breaking)

I was out having beer and felt it. S wave hit, P wave rolled us for 5-10 seconds. Felt like being on a bridge that was flexing.

I felt it hear at home. Decent rattle and sway.

They were saying 5.5 miles underground, south bay. I knew that it was pretty far by the wave period.

In a nod to people with no scientific understanding, they said "no tsunami possible"...DUH!

It shook enough to knock stacks of canned goods out of one of my kitchen cabinets.

Being on the top floor of my apartment building didn't help. The place creaked and groaned pretty loud.

It took about an hour for me to contact my family down in Palo Alto...The landlines and AT&T's cell network were swamped.

Shyt.
I live on the peninsula, and my home is built quite literally on a foundation of solid rock, so it's stable as hell. Felt it anyway, though.

That's what I get for living in a building built on 1907 earthquake wreckage!
