I am near Folsom California and I felt it. Kind of a sideways dizzy feeling. I have lived in California for many years and have felt several others. Hope it's not the precursor of The Big One.

I lived in Northern California for 25 years and that's always the first thing that pops into your head when things start moving.

 

Popped into my head the night of the Loma Prieta quake.

5.9 is a large quake, but not everybody in Northern California felt it.

 

I, who lives close to the Oregon border didn't feel it.

 

I hope that there wasn't any damage to property.


I just saw that you live in Northern CA, but close to Oregon border - are you off of I-5 or more on the Coast? My younger brother lives in Shasta Lake? 

 

Back in 2017 I came out to visit at Thanksgiving time and we drove up I-5 into Oregon up near Crater Lake; then over to Grants Pass and over to the Coast; back into CA; down to Eureka then took 299 back to Redding, CA.

I live on the coast, where the redwoods are.

Sometimes I miss the smell of the pulp mills...

Your map isn't showing the 4.8 near Stockton and all the other ones.
Cheddylady, I always think of that one Everytime we go over the Bay Bridge and get a earthquake

The pulp mills are long gone, but I too remember the smell  of the mills.

I live in the southbay area of SF. Didn't feel the quake.

 

ETA: USGS has now removed the quake near Stockton. They said the Stockton "earthquake" was probably the result of incorrect association of some of the waves from the Nevada quake with a secondary source.

The first time I smelled them, I asked my parents how anyone could live with that stench.

 

A few years later, when I was living in Arcata, I'd roll down the car window on my drive from the Bay Area just to inhale that... smell.

 

A lot of changes in that area. Woman Sad
