Living in the Earthquake zone

It happened at 8.40 pm. this evening while I was watching American Idol. Though I didn't feel it, my wife said, she did. A 4.2 earthquake with the epicenter approximately 25 miles South of where I live ! Scary !

Just last week, I experienced an earthquake while I was at work. It had its epicenter approximately 2 miles from where I work, in Berkeley, California. I felt that. I felt/heard a big thud and then the building shook for a few seconds.

Here is the earthquake map from US Geological Survey (USGS)

FYI, I live in Fairfield which you'll see in the map.

Yeah, the way it shook last evening during the elimination rounds of American idol, I thought for a min that it was one of Manohar's pranks LOL

Then when he looked at me oddly, I kind of realised that this was first earthquake shake in 8 years that I have experienced here!!
