Yesterday afternoon, my family came over to my house to celebrate Easter. At around 3:45pm, my parents were getting ready to leave when I heard a low rumbling. For a second, I thought the neighbor kids were banging on the wall. Then, I realized it was an earthquake as I noticed the house beginning to slowly rock and sway. I grabbed my dogs by their collars and headed out the back door. I meet a friend and my parents outside. We all stood in the street until it stopped. As my parents were walking outside, I noticed that my neighbor had still not come out. She was stuck inside of her gate and jiggling the handle. I joking yelled, "Lisa, get out here, or you'll be a goner!" Then, she flung the gate open. I saw that she was shaking and completely terrified. My mom ran over and gave her a hug. When we went back into the house, I tried to turn on the news, but I didn't see anything. I opened my laptop and tried to open a San Diego news site, but it wouldn't load. Instead, I opened Facebook and instantly saw earthquake-related posts from my friends all over Southern California. A few minutes later, I was able to view a map of the earthquake, located near Mexicali, Mexico. Throughout the evening, I felt many aftershocks. I became a little obsessed with checking the Mappity Quakes app on my iPhone, which shows recent earthquakes. Before I went to bed, I opened my medicine cabinet, and all of my little containers fell out--I guess they had shifted in the shake. Otherwise, there was not any damage at my house. However, I am worried about the people in Mexicali and Calexico who experienced a lot of damage.
