On a seismic scale, this 4.5 earthquake wasn’t very extreme. However, I was trying to take a peaceful shower when this happened, and I got pretty freaked out as glass shower doors started shaking pretty intensely.
Other electronic music artists were also pretty shook, confirming I wasn’t overreacting. Many took to twitter to panic. Check it out:

This wasn’t ‘the big one’ but it was definitely a big scare. Southern California experienced an earthquake just a month earlier, leaving residents a bit more tense as they get more frequent.
