So an earthquake happened early this morning. The epicenter was near Napa.

It was the biggest one in northern California since the Loma Prieta quake of 1989 (which was a 6.9 and was centered not far from where I live). No major injuries or fatalities reported, thankfully, but apparently there was some nasty building damage closer to the epicenter.

I live in the greater Santa Cruz area, over a hundred miles from the epicenter, but I did feel the quake. It woke me up, actually--I sleep on a futon on the floor (the ground floor), which probably accounts for me feeling it so easily. (My parents sleep on the second floor and didn't really feel it--and my mom pointed out that since they sleep in a waterbed, if they'd felt anything they'd probably just assume that it was the other person turning over in bed.) It wasn't very serious here at all; I'd compare the general feeling to that of being on a large boat, like a cruise ship, during slight turbulence. (So yes, I'm fine. )

When I was asleep I dreamed that an Earthquake happened, so I bet that I did feel it, but I slept through it.

I'm pretty far away though, several hundred miles south of Napa.
