Any one here affected by this. My fiancé woke me up and asked if I was ok she sais she felt the bed moving down like. Hill.

Funny thing is I slept through it. And the actual earthquake was napa, which is about 2 hours from where I live. Lol but they said it was a 6.1 which is the biggest since the loam priata.

I felt it. Didn't here any tanks crashing. Went back to bed. My family and the dog slept right through it. I know they said 6.1 but it felt more like 4.0.

 

Here's what happened to me on October 17, 1989.

 

  I was living in San Francisco and thought it would be a great day to go buy a snake from the East Bay Viverium in Oakland. I was planning on buying a black rat snake to add to my collection. So, I headed to the east bay with my friend. I just exited the Cypress off ramp (lower deck) and made a right turn and parked. The EBV is surrounded by old, tall brick buildings. We weren't in the store for more than a minute when the whole place started shaking violently. The cages were falling to ground smashing into pieces. Glass was everywhere. We bolted outside the store to see a huge choking grey dust cloud and heard what sounded like the loudest thunder crash you ever heard. I remember ducking on the ground with my hands over my head waiting for something to fall around me. For just a second after the thunder there was an eirie silence. You could here a pin drop. Then came the screams, fire and smoke. It took me a minute to realize what had just happened. Someone started screaming "the upper deck just collapsed". My buddy Simon and I helped a lot of people who were stranded on the upper deck that day and ended up giving a bunch of people rides home.  I hope nobody ever has to experience anything like that ever! I was 20 years old when that happened and it still haunts me to this day.
