3.8 Earthquake in Isla Vista (UCSB) near Santa Barbara

My wife was in the other room and noticed water was shaking in a glass or bottle there and realized we were having an earthquake near Santa Barbara. Sure enough, I checked and there was a 3.8 Earthquake in Isla Vista near UCSB and the Santa Barbara Airport. I checked and yesterday there was a 2.6 Earhquake in Desert Hot Springs near Palm Springs as well.

But, for those of you not living in California you usually don't worry much about earthquakes until they are at least a 5 or a 6 even though sometimes a 4 or even a 3 might leave cracks in your walls at times if you are nearby it at full intensity.
