‘Oh my gosh, look it, the earth is still shaking:’ Valley viewers react to 7.1 Magnitude Earthquake


Those living here in the Valley, still shaken from the ‘quakes. Many capturing cell phone video and sharing it with us.

The residents we spoke with still in shock after they say the trembling were felt so hard here.

“Oh my gosh, look it, the earth is still shaking,” one viewer expresses while capturing the second earthquake to hit the Valley.

The last two days of earthquakes have been quite the talker.

“I was at work last night some of the lamps were shaking and whatever, a coworker of mine came in today and told me she was at home, like her bed moved, it was crazy,” says Tyler Pence, a Central Valley resident.

Viewer cell phone video after viewer cell phone video, shows water gushing from pools across California and around the Central Valley.

“Must be going again, I don’t feel it much outside but look at the pool go, oh my goodness.”

This video from a Hanford resident’s pool of water spilling out, shows just how powerful the magnitude of the 7.1 earthquake hit Friday night, just one day after the one we had on the Fourth of July.

“It’s just kind of crazy, I was asking what are the odds of having one right after the other, we just weren’t expecting it to happen again,” says Carolyn Burns, a Clovis resident.

She and her husband, Buddy, are new parents to 4-month-old twins.

They say they were sitting on their couch when their TV, that the Burns say is mounted on the wall, started moving up and down.

Carolyn’s husband says he couldn’t tell if it was sleep deprivation or not.

“We’re not sleeping as much as usual and so I just thought I was a little bit out of it but then it kept going for about a minute I want to say, it was definitely the most intense earthquake I’ve felt,” Burns explained.

Experts warn there’s possibility of aftershocks. It’s always a good idea to be prepared.
