I just saw on the news here that baja cali had a 5.8 quake this morning followed by 4.9 and 4.0 aftershocks respectively. I didn't feel it here in Vegas, however a friend of mine works out here and was on the 12th floor and they felt it there. I have a couple of questions, first of all the closer to the ground you are, shouldn't you feel it more? Secondly, when an earthquake hits what do you do? I honestly don't know. I always thought you were suppose to stand in a doorway, but i read that it's not safe because doors can swing. I found tons of links on emergency preparedness/earthquake readiness, but no links on what the heck you are suppose to do to be safe.
So if anyone can help me out here, I'd just like to be prepared as I know we can get them too. I was looking at the geological EQ map and most of califiornia was lit up in blue/yellow and red boxes like 4th of july fireworks...kinda scary if you ask me.
