5.4 Mag Earthquake in Los Angeles this morning

I was on the phone at the office on the 11th floor of our building in Marina del Rey when I heard some expletives on the other side of the telephone line then the whole building shook like I had never felt before. I have been in LA for 6.5 years and this was the biggest earthquake I had felt. My Assistant and Sales Director have gone home for a lay down. There have been 27 after shocks in the hour since the quake and luckily there is no tsunami warning.
Was a bit of a rush, reminded me of being on a large boat in large swells.

Glad there is no reports of bad damage or death.

Welcome to Los Angeles.

Hey Rob,
Nearly was Captain Pantshat when the building started rocking. Set a new record for the 100m as we ran outside...

My building did the wobble for sure. We did run out and I probably should not have made jokes about the roof falling as the people I was with certainly did the 1/4 mile in about 1 second. Glad all was well. Was back upstairs in about 7 minutes.
