I felt it and I’m six miles away from the epicenter. Didn’t feel like a quake to me, I thought my cat had just kicked my sliding door, hard. I realized it was a quake when a friend two miles from it called asking if I’d felt it. He felt it as two sharp jolts.

there was another one this morning, 3:16. A magnitude 2.4, in the same area, but it made our wind chimes ring here in SB.

Wait a minute--'trailer parks' are supposed to get tornados not earthquakes. There's a movie w/a car going by scene that gives a brief glimpse of one with a sign that says, '[23] days, no tornado!'

Yep, I was sitting in my living room and the whole house was jolted and shaking. Live less than 3 miles from the epicenter. Thought it was bigger then a 3.3 but didn't realize how close we were to the epicenter. No damage though.
