Thread: Mid Del Earth quakes again

  1. #1

    Default Mid Del Earth quakes again

    Any body feel the two today that occurred at 12;30.
    29th and Sunnylane and shook pretty good, but what amazes me is the boom sound that accompanies them

    The second was not as big as the first and occured about 5 minutes after the first.

    I have checked the USGS and nothing yet to report there as to size or location.

    Redskin 70, you should have felt and heard the one we had in San Francisco ... 89 Loma Prieta 7.1

    I think I had post traumatic stress syndrome after that thing hit.

    It feels like I'm living in Bakersfield again.

    Hearing us talk about these earthquakes is about like Filipinos freaking out over an F1 tornado.

    Hope everyone in Del City is okay.

    I happened to be home for lunch and felt them as well.

    Any opinions or thoughts about what kind of damage these small quakes can do to the foundation/structure of homes?

    I know nothing about home building/structure but it seems that one too many could do some permanent damage.
