    ER Unconfirmed Unlinked Experiences Aug 14 00:00 4.6 0 MAP I Felt It
  • Eugowra, nsw 2806 - Like a truck hit the house
  • CANADA - You have NO news on the California earthquake that was subsequently deleted on USGS? I have admired and relied on your info for awhile but find it scary that there's not even a mention of this news. ER : We have updated the site a couple of hours after the USGS had deleted the hoax earthquake again. So we did not bring the news, but surely bring it now after your remark, because we think you are right that it should not be omitted !
  • Oklahoma City, OK - I definitely felt earthquake-type shaking at approximately 9:45-10 p.m. on August 13, 2010 that lasted approximately 1 minute. It was sufficient to continuously rattle several glass objects sitting on a table and to move a wall-mounted picture. I have seen no mention of this activity on local news channels.
  • Los Angeles, CA - It happened in the evening, probably between 10-11pm with strong shaking for about 5 seconds followed by moderate shaking that gradually lessened over 3 minutes. Could see hanging items swaying throughout.

    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames.
