California earthquake, 6.7 Richter, with Big Bear Lake at the epicenter. It was the first of two in the same general southern California area that together caused close to $100 million in damages.
In Yucaipa, 43 miles down the mountainside, Lois Rodden described the quake; "After the first quake (Landers), my son went back to bed but I went to my desk. Knowing there would be aftershocks, I left the front door open; the weather was mild. There were a few little tremors but nothing much until the second quake struck with a strong, rocking jolt. I got up to go to the front door but halfway across the room, was thrown to my hands and knees. I crawled to the front door and looking out, could see my Buick in the driveway bouncing back and forth from its front to back, and my poor cat tearing across the yard one way and another in abject terror. The aftershocks continued for weeks, thousands of them, some as big as 4. and 5. After a while we would just pause, holding nervous attention for a moment or two to see whether we would have to climb under the table or not. (My cat was not so blasé; she hid in my closet for at least three days.)"
