6.4 Earthquake rocks SoCal, felt in 29 Palms Desert Heights

I felt it while while seated at my computer. First thoughts: I was dizzy, then the house slightly swayed. I quickly took Jasper (big-big dog) and went outside.  

Reports from call in witnesses to CNN report fires in Ridgecrest!

This quake was very close to the surface. This was a long rolling shallow quake. Shallow quakes are  potentially more damaging.

Residents were putting images on twitter while the quake was happening.

Note that a warning preceded the 6.4 quake, say experts, because there was a 4 quake half-hour prior.

The quake was felt in Santa Barbara, Mexico, Nevada and elsewhere.

Have a safe and relaxing 4th of July.
