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.

Water was splashing 2-3 ft high out of the swiming pool here in Temecula...and it was long lasting to.

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.

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.

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
