    I wonder if we have an early warning system here in CA?

    If I lived in California and had a dog I would be watching my dog very closely for any strange behavior. When Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines awoke there was an earthquake. It lasted about 1 minute. My dog was laying down and wouldn't get up when I called him. Funny thing is that the news never even reported that quake. It was enough to move one of my kids beds from one side of the room to the other. A big hanging Mirror was swaying so bad it came off the wall.

    It could have been Mt. Mayon too for nobody reported it. It felt like a 7 or 8 but from researching it was either a 5.8 or 6.1.

    My husband thinks that was when Mt. Pinatubo woke up because this happened in late 1984. We left the Philippines March 1985.

    The January 8, 2009(?) quake here was a 5.0 as reported by USGS. I didn't know what the heck it was until it was over. My apt shook like crazy. A loud snap preceded any real shaking. What caught my attention was the ceiling and walls were acting up, but then there was weird cacophony of noise as all the metal railings and windows in the whole building started rattling like crazy. That sort of spooked me.

    :lol:

    Animals seem to detect it before humans do, that is why if you have a pet to pay attention to them. The slightest different behavior could be an indication. Example, if your dog always comes to you when you call him, and he doesn't but rather just lays down. RED FLAG.
