... and I wasn't going to post at all, but apparently it surprises people that the earthquake was noticeable in Santa Cruz. I assure you, you could feel it. I was in a restaurant at the time, and the ground shook, and the lights swayed madly. When I got back to my 6th floor apartment, several light objects had fallen off of their shelves and stacks.

I think the 7.1 quake my freshman year felt worse, in that we could actually feel the aftershocks in Claremont, but this was the worst one I've been in since.

ETA: The most amusing of the 20-odd earthquake posts I read through this morning: http://www.kith.org/journals/jed/2007/10/30/10696.html.

Also, here's a link to report your quake experience to the USGS site.

It makes me sad that the biggest quake I was in (the 94 Northridge/Reseda quake) doesn't get listed as a "major" quake on the USGS website, just "significant." I heard that apparently it was really a 7.1 but they were pressured to make it officially a 6.8 because there was some law that said if it was above 7.0 nobody had to pay income taxes or something. Probably a bunch of BS, but it was funny at the time.

We worked together the past two summers. Also, I've seen him at Kam's parties.
