        WOW I felt it in a highrise condo overlooking the ocean. The building just rolled back and forth it seemed like forever as my neighbors were running out of the bldg i could not cause I love my cats and was chasing them around my condo, trying to find their cat carriers. I finally got them in the carriers and it stopped. Looked over the balcony and my neighbors were in front on the lawn. The aftershocks have been 5.4 and 5.0 rolling no jumping, I think those are the worst. Me and kitties are ok for now

        I am watching CNN right now and they are talking it.

        Glad you and kitties are okay, that is a wicked earthquake that they say was centered in northern Mexico.

        Hope all will be okay there.

        Actually it was kind of funny watching me chase the cats and of course they don't stay together they were running in opposite directions like I had to choose which one i loved more. But got them both finally. I was in the Northridge quake and even though it was only 6.6 it was terrible that was a jump and drop one. Like the bldg lifted up and dropped. This was more rolling if you were standing still you would have hit the wall it was a fast roll like teter totter not slow roll where you can walk.  :D I think I felt it more cause i am a straight shot from the coast down from Baja where the epicenter was. One thing we do get here is the Tsunami warnings after the earthquakes that is scary.

        They are saying this could be a precursor to the big one. I am sleeping with the cat carriers on my bed oh and the cats too.

        Lucky, I would have been the same as what you did...talking about cat, I have three and I also have two kids...you know what I mean...I will probably go crazy.

        Hope that nothing more occurs. We had the "Great Spring Break Quake" here in Oregon years ago..I know what you mean by "Rolling" and not "jumping (Ours was a bit of both)

        Let's hope all stays well and those in the epicenter are ok too...Prayers headed south for them.

          I can only try to imagine what it is like to be in an earthquake lucky8s.  It must be pretty scary. 

          Glad you are ok (and your kittys too).

          So glad your okay lucky8s. 

          I cant imagine going thru a earthquake, and what that would feel like.  Here in Michigan we dont get those and I am thankful. (we have to deal with tornados)

          So glad it is over, and you and your kitty's are safe and sound.
