11:05 pm
>> i have to say photo journalist scott arthur and i were sitting at the an jose bureau working on a completely different story when we felt that earthquake. initially i thought it was feeling just a bit dizzy but then i looked up and saw our light fixtures swaying. now, i want you to take a look at that video. of course nothing compared to the power people in southern california experienced but still quite shocking. now, we spoke with usgs officials in men park, and they said the, quote, big one is coming. we also spoke with people in the south bay where swaying chandeliers caught their attention. >> we're eating dinner and we could see the chandeliers moving and employees talking to each other. and i was like maybe it's the air conditioner but they were swaying. >> it was pretty scary especially what happened this weekend. >> this is more common hazard as you know from our own

shocks following tonight's quake and it could go on for weeks or even up to a year. a very active event still, and we don't know exactly how strong the after shocks may be that follow tonight's quake. a stronger one than tonight's quake would make tonight a preshock. >> thank you very much. now, abc 7 news producer ken miguel was in palm springs having dinner at a friends house when the quake hit. >> we should explain ken is a bay area native and used to earthquakes but he said this one made him feel queasy. >> it felt like it kept going and going and going. just roll through. you could see the heaters on the patio swaying, the pool started to slosh, and it's just a constant rolling motion through the backyard. >> abc 7 news assignment editor ed walsh was inside palm springs international airport with the quake hit. he said in this video the
