I am glad I left CA on Monday, I however do not like reading that it is very active right now while I have family in both Southern and Northern CA.

I live in California (bout an hour away from Sicy). So far none of these quakes have caused anything close to major damage. The two biggest ones happened out at sea, so there was no damage to speak of, and the two smaller ones have only caused minor damage from what I've heard.

I'll say this though - having lived in Southern California, the San Francisco bay area, and Oklahoma, and having lived through earthquakes and tornados - tornados are scarier to me.

We're fine...Crescent City is 750 miles north of us but there are plenty of other Blue Crackers between here and there...

I'll second the motion about fear of tornadoes...my first wife's family lived in Fort Smith, Ark...just east of Oklahoma border,,,,we spent a month there during the same year and month that several of their smaller towns were blown away.,..my first and only trip to a storm cellar....never again, X's fingers..

So...they're moving up the coast, and there was one in Alaska last week too. I think I best be getting that Earthquake Kit together because Seattle's right in the middle.

I started my "kit" 4 years ago after the 2001 quake here, but never finished it. Right now it is a big plastic box with a first aid kit and 3 flashlights and a bunch of batteries.

I don't know if I believe that. I just don't think the folks at CalTech and the other university Earthquake centers would lie about something like that.

The two things that caused the damage were the fact that it was a thrust fault, up down motion just seems more violent. Also, I think it was a fairly shallow quake. I remember there was a 8.something a while back that happened so deep underground it didn't cause much damage (it didn't happen here, I think Asia or SA).

Anyways, I can totally see a 6.7 earthquake causing the damage caused by Northridge.

I agree with Mr BAW.....I'll take an earthquake rather than a tornado!
A few months back I was traveling to Boston on a business trip and the flight had a connection in Denver.....when we got there, I noticed that the bathrooms in that airport are also Tornado shelters...

Quake magnitudes are frequently downgraded following the event. The 5.3 Yucaipa quake was adjusted to 4.9.
