You were a DOOZY of a wave to ride out, you rascal !!
I remember that bastard...I'm in the San Gabriel Valley so it wasn't nearly as shitty over here.
More pics or it didn't happen.
I remember that son of a bitch!
Sausageville looks like a dump
""Crushed vehicles at the Northridge Meadows apartment complex on Jan. 17, 1994, the day of the Northridge earthquake. Sixteen residents were killed in the magnitude 6.7 temblor. (Roland Otero / Los Angeles Times)""
Look at all those priceless cars destroyed. Such a damn shame
My apartment in Sherman Oaks was fucked up. Huge cracks running the length of walls. Everything out of the kitchen cabinets, all glass shattered. Electronics and furniture crushed. I was ordered out of my apartment for a week. I can't believe they let us back so quickly.
And with every aftershock, I would be panicked, ready to run for my life. Scary stuff.
I was in San Diego and the rolling motion woke me up and my closet doors were both moving along the track on their own
Scary stuff. My landlord has a mirror crash down and break into shards and she had to run in the dark through the shards with bare feet. She cut her feet up pretty bad.
I tried to find the clip of Kent Shocknek reporting during the quake, but it's not on youtube.
It was hilarious from what I remember.
Oh that sounds good, I wish it was on YouTube.
Don't ruin my Chuck Heston flash backs with reality
I remember getting out of bed and turning on the TV.
He was reporting and all jittery, then I think an aftershock hit and he dove underneath his desk.
Sort of like this one from the 80's:
I also remember law enforcement had a nightly curfew called for safety and to prevent looting. Ventura Boulevard looked eerily like it has been in a war zone; all tore up, buildings smoking, alarms sounding, and limited movement of people. It really was kind of scary for a young girl.
I don't know if I could blame him.
