Last week's big news: EARTHQUAKE.
Earthquake?— Richard Brehaut (@Brehaut12) August 8, 2012
Yes, it was an earthquake. A 4.5 out by Yorba Linda. This is a good time to remind everyone to check their emergency kits and their home emergency plans.
Did anyone just feel that— Kevin McReynolds (@LifeofKM) August 8, 2012

But remember, Kevin McReynolds is from DC, not California.
Everyone acts like earthquakes are nothing out here does anyone fear for there life? lol— Kevin McReynolds (@LifeofKM) August 8, 2012
Not for a 4.5. I don't even get slightly worked up until it hits a 5.
We have another California newbie!
1st earthquake & I was sleep.— Korey McCray (@Coach_KAM) August 8, 2012
Don't worry Coach McCray, it wasn't big enough to worry about.
What is everyone Gunna do when the "big one" hits !? Lol— Nick Kazemi (@Nick_1K4z) August 8, 2012
Probably freak out, clog the streets, and hope that the freeway doesn't collapse again like in 1989 Loma Prieta's or 1994's Northridge Quake.
And as I sit here and write 1989, I realize some of the kids weren't even born yet. Oof.
More tweets as I chase kids off my lawn after the jump.

Dwight Howard is a Laker, everyone. Our long Dwight Howard national nightmare is over.
During the Dwight press conference, Kupchak should just say "Steve Nash and Dwight Howard" then drop the mic and retire— Richard Brehaut (@Brehaut12) August 10, 2012
