It was just one quick jolt. I was sitting and felt it, my husband was standing and didn't feel anything, but we both heard the house creak loudly! I don't think my hubby believed me until I looked up earthquakes in Livermore online. Nothing shook, not even the fan pulls. Did anybody else feel it? We live about a mile West of the Lab.

Message from Universe. Epicenter of earthquake was directly under the spot where the mom killed her baby last week. Any closer to the Dell Valle Dam and the earthquake would have destroyed the dam and thousands would have been flooded in their sleep. Bad karma.

Living in springtown I felt it while laying in bed. It was like a jolt. Sounds superstitious terry, it's faults & plates that cause earthquakes not murder.
