    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 :scared::worried:

    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.

    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:

    :D

    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.
