My guess is not that big.

We had a 2.3 the other day that was similar. Like a quick jolt.

Warning? He seemed baffled that no one got a warning. WTH?

"The 4.2 magnitude earthquake was "too small to trigger the delivery of #ShakeAlert-powered alerts to cell phones," USGS ShakeAlert wrote on Twitter."

He crashed around his cage hysterically and lost some flight feathers. I’m pretty shook up myself.

I’m in Thousand Oaks.

Small creaks and pops from the house’s wood frame, and plaster walls. I felt/heard the initial jolt, looked up from my tablet and after a half second or so felt the initial compression waves, then within a couple few seconds you could feel side to side shake lasting maybe 15-20 seconds total.

Woke both cats sharing twin recliners with me. The male Siamese who claimed my wife side let out a low yowl and almost got up to hide before the quake settled down.

One USGS page has an earthquake map and a list of events on the left hand side.

Lists Malibu at 4.2, then 3.5, then 2.8, then 2.6...

I guess they don't differentiate between events on this page ???
