Earthquake just Hit Southern California Today

We hope everyone in Southern California is safe and sound from this 5.8 magnitue earthquake that just hit us out of Chino Hills in San Bernardino County.  It been way too long and it finally came.  The earthquake was felt all the to Los Angeles, Simi Valley, San Diego. and Las Vegas.  To know how intense the earthquake was in your area, please click here, and mouse over where you were at.  Our building was shaking a bit for a few good, seemed to be very long, seconds.  We’re glad that all of our pallets racks and shelves are bolted to the ground and secured to for these type of situations.  We very shock but calmly made it out of the building to a safe area.

What a wake up all it was today!  When the 5.8 magnitude quake that hits us at 11:42 a.m. another 10 aftershocks occured as well.  Cell phones are weren’t working for a few minutes, so we hope everyone had a chance to call their love ones to make sure everything is ok.

We had a evacuation plan, so hopefully everybody did to.  If not, it’s not to late to make one!  Be safe everyone.  I’m still jitters by it!  Here is a history of California Earthquake from 1769-Present.  Researchers were right its been way too long since we had an Earthquake.  -Just hopefully this was a biggest one that hits, but Mother Nature is uncontrolable.

    I was actually in the restroom doing a #2 at work. Felt the ground rolling up and down. I then realize “crap,” an earthquake right now? Why did it have to be right now. I yelled out “earthquake” and finished my business ASAP. Ran out and all the employees were gone. They already ran outside, I was the last one to get outside. Hope everyone is prepared for the next big earthquake.
