Last night I had a Los Angeles flashback.

Around three in the morning, I woke up when I felt my bed moving. Seeing how I was the only one in it I was alarmed.

I heard car/scooter alarms go off and the whole building was shaking.

I am watching the news now to find out more info. There was a major 6.3 earthquake in Abruzzo last night.

It's beyond awful. The stone consruction here just crumbles when this happens. So many dead, injured and homeless. It is heartbreaking.

It is truly heartbreaking, and I'm relieved you're okay.

I heard this getting ready for work this morning & instantly thought of you!!! SO glad to hear you're okay - prayers to everyone else - it looks so devastating. I remember my one quake experience from my L.A. days - very, very scary!

I turned on the radio this morning and couldn't believe the news. We have a good friend in l'Aquila who fortunately is alright. He and his family had to spend the night in the car though. Scary stuff.

My sister Nell and I are saying silent prayers for all affected by this horrible event. Hope you are well.

ciao everyone...yes I fine. Last night was a little surreal. It took me a minute to realize what was happening. Once the "Oh sh*t it's an earthquake." light came on I was freaked out.

I know there are earthquakes here but they don't happen as frequently as they do in L.A.

So many people have lost there lives and many are injured and homeless. It's a horrible situation.
