    Thanks for wasting the end of Hell's Kitchen with a story about nothing..
    No damage – not in our area – lets bring in the whole news team and pretend this is a story!

    When will you be replaying something we actually tune into this channel for?
    Hells Kitchen and the New show following it?

    Great job fox40 – way to jump into action – we all feel much safer now!

    Maybe we can take some calls from crazy people with no lives and ask if their cabinets opened?
    Did you feel shaking?
    I'm sure there will be some incredible investigative reporting we cannot do without.

    Felt it in Roseville while sitting at a red light. WEIRD feeling when your car moves while your foot is on the brake.

    I'm in Sacramento for a work related meeting. I felt the earthquake last night. I'm from Eureka on the coast where a 5.7 is only slightly more than our almost daily earthquakes. Apparently you don't have that many earthquakes over this way since the media is making a HUGE deal of this.
