Was sitting outside in a chair, and really felt the earthquake, it went on for quite a while, in the San Gabriel Valley area. The chair was rocking around, gentle motion, but certainly felt. Those closer probably felt it a lot stronger.

Quite an impressive shake when felt up here in Escondido. Also had one significant aftershock. Big impact will be in the Imperial Valley.

We felt a slow rolling here in Woodland Hills. 6.9 in Baja makes sense. I figured it must be big and far away.

very long quake, started out slow, rolling, then went to sharper back & forth, then rolled off.

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

Looking at the map it appears to be part of the Southern San Andreas fault that runs into the Sea of Cortez. They have lots of smaller earthquakes in that general area all the time including a few 5’s. This is the largest one in quite while.

I wonder if this is the beginning of something bigger as there is a ton of activity at just one place in Mexico. Maybe it’s a drug cartel blasting a new tunnel? :P
