My first earthquake: Chino Hills Earthquake

I just experienced my first earthquake: Chino Hills Earthquake. It lasted maybe 20-30 seconds and they’re saying it was a 5.4. It was sort of a rolling motion, as if Mahalo HQ was suddenly on water. It reminded me of being in a boat that hits something. Crazy. There’s definitely a sort of primal “whoa the ground isn’t supposed to do this” feeling when it happens.

    Welcome to LA! That was our first big one in awhile. Brings back memories of cowering under door ways when I was a kid. Why do we live here again?!!? :P
