Eulla and Eulleah
Tuesday, July 29, 2008
As I was trying to figure out if it was an earthquake or just a truck passing by the road Eulla asked me "Mama, what dat?". So then I figured SHOOT, it is an earthquake! I immediately grabbed my purse and carried Eulla. We hurriedly ran outside the condo. We saw lots of people outside waiting for the earthquake to stop. Finally after about 20 seconds, it stopped. I then called Eumir on my cellphone to see if everything was fine on his side of the town. It took a while to be connected. I guess everyone was trying to call their family as well.
So after speaking to Eumir, he informed me that it was a 5.8 magnitude. The epicenter was at Chino Hills. A couple more aftershock followed with a 3.8 magnitude. I felt like it was more than that. I have such a bad phobia on earthquakes after the 1994 Northridge earthquake happened. It was so scary! I am just glad nothing bad happened.
