5.8

With Downtown, Los Angeles being vicariously near the epicenter and with me and my family stuck in a building on the fourth floor during a strong earthquake isn’t fun. The building was swaying back and forth with occasional shaking that made it seem like we were going to collapse underneath. I remembered seeing a vague view from my dad’s big office window that the earthquake was actually shaking the dirt off the buildings! My sister was still as stone while I was telling her to get under the table, but she never moved an inch (she even manages to not listen to me during an emergency, haha). Everyone in the store panicked and sprinted down four flights of stairs to safety. After that whole episode everyone went back upstairs very shaken up about the “moderate” earthquake (as the news puts it). That entire time all I could think about was my family and Franco so I’m extremely glad nothing bad happened today.
