    Wanted to let everyone know we are OK after our 6.4 earthquake today. It was a rolling quake and it knocked glassware and pictures to the floor. Minor injuries were reported locally and our local hospital was evacuated.

    We are fine but a bit shaken up --- literally.

    Thank you for letting us know. Hopefully the aftershocks aren't too bad. I tend to get a little tense when they come.

    We felt the 7.1 quake which scared me. The house shook for about 40 seconds. Nothing was damaged thank goodness.

    Ridgecrest survived the quake although the movie theater has been red tagged. Some local schools received some moderate damage. The local hospital was shut down for awhile and patients were transported to area hospitals. The hospital is up and running again.

    Thank you for your prayers.

    Thanks Wolf1. We are hanging in there. I've had a couple bad dreams after I felt a couple bumps while I was asleep. The 7.1 really scared me as the whole house shook. According to the seismologists, we were rated an 8 out of 10 when it comes to shake intensity. Where my husband works it was a 9. Fortunately the quake hit when no one was at work or there could have been some serious injuries.

    We never lost water but our we are down to 6 wells out of the 10 that are supposed to be operating. Two wells could be used except there is a problem with the arsenic gauge due to instrumentation failure. The EPA requires arsenic to be removed from water if it reaches a certain level. To be honest I drank plenty of our water before the EPA lowered the arsenic limit and I've never had a problem. Off my soap box for now :)
