Earthquake Today

The building started shaking pretty good just a few minutes ago, and it lasted well over 20 seconds. After 15 seconds or so, I started wondering how long it would last. I started considering getting in a “triangle of life” position. It gradually subsided. The epicenter was over 50 miles away, and the magnitude 5.6; that was an interesting experience.

UPDATE: It was actually 5.8 magnitude, closer to Chino Hills.

UPDATE 2: LA Times has it at 5.4 magnitude.

    i was curious about the triangle of life and tried to do some googling. I was hoping to find a picture of the position.

    I found the website of the people that heavily promote it: http://www.amerrescue.org/

    I also found an article on snopes that puts some doubt on the triangle: http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/household/triangle.asp

    the only image of the “triangle of life” found was this one: http://www.soundwavestv.com/DoubleTrouble.jpg

    looks fun, but I dont think it would keep you safe.

    if you can find any solid description and pictures of the position let me know.

    no luck with pictures of the triangle position. I did have “moderate safesearch” on in the google images search, so I probably missed some pretty interesting photos. I’m still at work, so that’s probably okay!

    did a GIS with Safe Search off… no NSFW pics within the first 300.

    unfortunately nothing that really showed me much either.

    this is the best picture… http://www.amerrescue.org/images/tri.jpg

    not really what I was looking for 🙁

    Earthquakes are no joke out there. I remember the one we had a few months ago barely woke me up, and I didn’t even realize it was an earthquake until you texted me the next day.
