In southern California a massive, 6.4 magnitude earthquake has struck, causing damage to roads and buildings.

Stores were also socked by the shaking, sending the celebratory suds crashing to the floor.

Some even took a moment to chide CNN for their shoddy reporting on the quake, which is the most powerful that the region has seen in decades.

One newsman reported that the quake had a unique feel to it.

One Twitter user even lamented that the movie Independence Day began with an earthquake that turned out to be an alien invasion…

Scarier still; the shaking could be far from over.

Lucy Jones, a seismologist and founder of the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science & Society, said it was the strongest quake to hit the state in 20 years. A magnitude 4.0 quake reported about half an hour before the 6.4 was a foreshock, she said.

“It’s certain that this area will be shaken a lot today,” Jones said at a news briefing. “Some of those aftershocks might exceed magnitude 5.”

Stay safe, California!
