Wow...that was a good shake...it went on for quite a while. Everybody ok?
We felt it all the way up in Phoenix Arizona!!!
Wife and I were wondering “What the heck is that?!?”
We felt a slow rolling here in Woodland Hills. 6.9 in Baja makes sense. I figured it must be big and far away.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt one go on that long. All okay in Yorba Linda.
Something fell in the family room but I havent checked yet.

very long quake, started out slow, rolling, then went to sharper back & forth, then rolled off.
Shake, shake, shake...
It was a good 30 second roller here in Cypress, California. We are a few miles West of Disneyland.
In San Diego - felt it good - good enough that I went outside.
In fact, just felt a small tremor again. There have been several tremors in the 4.3 range for the past few days.
But .. a 6.9 is not a small earthquake.
Rolling motion - like a boat.
The Chile earthquake was 6.9, and the Haiti Earthquake was a 7.0.
My Mom was yelling earthquake and I did not know what the heck she was talking about..I saw different things in the house moving and I’m like, I don’t feel anything..it was weird, like a sway that kept on going, the dogs of course, did not care..I held them since I did not want anything to fall on them. Thank God this was not in LA, damn, imagine the damage there. Where north of LA are you? I’m in West LA
How long did it last? 30 secs? 1 min.?
Felt it here in Hollywood too. the studio just shook, people stared and everyone went outside to check if their cars are still there..
It’s been revised to a 7+, per Twitter.
Felt it here in L.A.
Very long shimmy.
