Learn geography. Quake was in N. Ca, Red is in SoCal, at least 350 miles away

And I'm (BLT) even further south. I didn't feel anything. But the waves this morning were extraordinary.

Yeah I felt the tail end of the quake it shook pretty good, but nothing compared to the one in 89.

Some people there got hit bad, others did not. All of my friends experienced some damage, mostly things falling from walls or tables. Only one had anything serious happen, and that ended up being more bad luck than anything. (Dog was sleeping in the garage, and a double bowling bag fell down and crushed the dog's ribcage. My buddy found him barely alive, and ended up having him put down. Needless to say he is devastated.)

Other friend lost a few odds and ends, nothing serious. But 2 of their neighbor's houses collapsed.

Yeah, it's a hot mess. Was supposed to see Marshall Crenshaw and The Bottle Rockets on sat, but I'm guessing the show will be cancelled or postponed. I am gonna head there and help out friends as needed.

It would of been better if no one was hurt.


I had expected the damage to be minimal since I thought California was more resistant to damage since it's always getting hit.

A lot of the buildings and houses in Napa that got damaged are historical, or were not reinforced properly. One of the buildings that got damaged the worst JUST WENT THROUGH reinforcement a few years ago. So either corners were cut, or they just simply did a **** poor job.

There's not really anything we can do to make something 100% earthquake proof. It's kind of like earthquake-resistant. The bay area is chock full of really old ****, too.
