I'm at work in Chatsworth, which is in the very Western part of this huge city of Los Angeles, and I gots ta tell ya, this quake we just had at about 11:45 a.m. local time felt pretty bad. All I could say over and over again as it was happening was the Spanish word for earthquake, terremoto. LOL! The further east you go towards the epicenter (like towards where I live or in Pasadena), I can only imagine how much worse it felt. My nerves went off a bit, but I'm okay now. Magnitude 5.4. Cell phones/landlines are jammed. Some of my cubicle toys fell off. Again, it felt very very strong here. This has been a bad shaker, but it seems like damage will be minimal.
We got lucky. This time.
