Magnitude-3.5 Earthquake Rattles Northern California

   MIDDLETOWN, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say they received no reports of damage or injuries after a magnitude-3.5 earthquake struck Northern California’s Lake County overnight.

   The United States Geological Survey says the quake struck at 4:13 a.m. Wednesday about five miles west of Middletown and 20 miles north of Santa Rosa, which is in neighboring Sonoma County.

   A dispatcher with the Santa Rosa police department said he did not feel anything and had not received any distress calls connected to the quake.

    Oh please 3.5 are not worth reporting ;nobody feels them
    unless they had a hous eof cards on the table and even then its more like
    a semi rumbling up the street.. no big deal!. We have hundreds of earthquakes
    from 1.0-4.0 every week if you reported all of them there would be nothing else in the news.

    “A dispatcher with the Santa Rosa police department said he did not feel anything…” OF COURSE NOT! The dispatcher was probably sleeping at 4:13 AM!!! DUH!

    If a loss occurs, homeowners are devastated to find that their insurance policy does not just pay out the coverage amount. I know this first hand!

    Having gone through several fires in Malibu, the Corral Canyon Fire on November 24, 2007 was the one that destroyed my home. IMPORTANT: Homeowners don’t realize that an itemized list is required by your insurer after a loss. Plus, if I had compiled a list prior to my loss, I would have realized I was under insured! This was my families OMG moment.

    After my tragedy, it has been my mission to help homeowners around the nation and world not to take unnecessary risks. Hence… DocuHome’s home inventory application
