Eureka is a bit south of me.  I heard it was minor.  

There was one a year or so before we moved here that destroyed our old courthouse. The new one is nice.   I am thankful for minor earthquakes.

It is interesting that a minor one can feel devastating if you sit on the epicenter.  I was once in a clothing store when an earthquake hit.  I went to stand in a doorway that led to a shoe storage area and the shoe shelves collapsed.  So I started to back away but the plate glass windows maybe 10’ away were rolling like water so I figured falling shelves & boxes was better than glass shrapnel so I stayed put.  

Come to find out it was only like a 4.2 but I was literally on the epicenter.  Many businesses were damaged in the immediate area too.
