Wow. We heard the plane crashing, then it felt like an earthquake. We definitely thought it happened right outside our house. Thankful to be okay, but praying for those involved in the Yorba Linda crash. Thankful for the quick reaction from all the first responders we saw. pic.twitter.com/REelIPr1xE— Savannah Lambert (@sav_king12) February 3, 2019
