Regarding the earthquake, we felt both the 6.4 and the 7.1, but we are 150 miles away from the epicenter so it was mild. We all had an unsettled feeling, but it was probably more mental than physical. Nothing like the 6.5 Sylmar quake in '71, or Northridge, 6.9, in '94 because Sylmar was only 20 miles away, and Northridge less than 10. Plus they were in heavily populated areas, there were fires, broken glass, building and freeway collapses resulting in many injuries and deaths. This current one, huge as it was, hit in a small town in the desert, no one died.
