"My dog, before the earthquake stood straight up shaking, a few seconds
later the earthquake hit.", according to a young girl who got up before the earthquake because she was thirsty.

" I just sobered up from my birthday party, drove in my driveway, got out of my car, and was thrown against my car, by the earthquake." said a young girl who just turned twenty-one.
