"I felt it" reports:
San Pedro, California / not felt: Last summer, I dreamt about a future earthquake. I was given two dates. One was for today, July 17, 2018. (The other is coming, over a month away...) I wrote in my notes what I saw take place for today: "I saw a lady on a nice boat. The boat was tipping over to its side. Felt an earthquake hit us. I'll never forget the look of that lady's face; one of total fear, shock..." My husband and I live not that far from Santa Cruz Islands. And although, I didn't physically feel it ... I spiritually felt
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
