Yep, it's true.
I was siting on my couch, television and laptop computer both competing for my attention. I knew what it was when I felt the first tremor. Right after that, the place shook a bit. Not bad enough to make things fall, but I just hate being in an earthquake. Been in many. This one, luckily, was pretty mild, at 4.5, so I was lucky this time.
Hope no one had any losses or injuries...

Yup. I was sleeping and all of the sudden the ground shook. I live in an apartment and I think the cracks on the ceiling got bigger.

According to the news reports I've heard today, this small quake was felt in several counties.
Northern Calif has plenty of quakes, but some areas just don't get them as often as others. (San Francisco/bay area gets plenty and they're in No Calif and SF is a great example of over population.)

Just to show the contrast of outdoor environments to those unfamiliar with So Calif:
Where else in the USA can you surf ocean waves before breakfast, jet ski in a choice of clean lakes before lunch, go fishing for your lunch from any of a few lakes from the shore or a boat, hit the snow covered slopes with your skies or snow board before dinner, then enjoy a nice BBQ in the warm desert, ALL in ONE day? And have time between any of these activities to fly their RC Helis?
People in So Calif can.

At least with a Tornado or Hurricane, some people may have the opportunity to leave or avoid a predicted path of destruction.
Not the case with an earthquake. And because there are no accurate predictions, nor a path, where can you go, besides outdoors, away from buildings, powerlines (both could be hazards and/or fall), etc?
Whether you're at home or at work, there is a certain helplessness to knowing there is nothing you can do, once the structure you're in starts shaking, except to protect your loved ones and yourself, the best you can.
Even when the quake stops, you don't know if that's a precursor to a bigger one that can start at any time.

Newer buildings are getting better and better of with standing the sheer force of earthquakes. So its getting safer. Earthquakes in India have a larger death toll because there buildings literately crumble away when an earthquake hits. The condo I live in Vegas has these cool shock absorber things placed on the foundation. Its supposed to make the building more flexible under stress.
I'm much more afraid of tornado's and hurricanes.
