I don’t watch the news so I hadn’t heard about your quake.  I’m glad that you are all okay though!

I saw something on facebook about a quake.  But other than that I’ve been away from media all day.  Hope everyone is safe!

Yes, it was definitely the biggest quake I’ve ever felt. The epicentre was in Mexico, so it was CRAZY down here in San Diego. The after shocks were the wierdest, it felt like we were on a boat – the whole earth was like rolling waves – and it just wouldn’t stop. It certainly was wild.

Does anyone know if the epicentre area (Mexicali, I think) is okay? Any major damage anywhere?

I live in Santa Monica – and I felt it! It was like these slow gentle rolls though. The 4.4 one that was in Pico Rivera two weeks ago was scarier!

We felt it in Orange County.  It made me nauseous.   I had a headache afterwards.  We were with family too.  Of course, my mom freaks out, but the rest of us went on as if it was no big deal.

we felt it too!  I’ve been in a bunch of earthquakes so I am used to them, but this one was weird … it was loooong and made me feel dizzy … crazy how we felt it and the epicenter was in Mexi!

We were in a restaurant in Brea and the square chandeliers inside started swaying like crazy.  It actually made me feel nauseous, like I was in a rocking boat.  And it was loooong. People actually ran outside but we rode it out in our booth, thankfully no chandeliers were above us.    I’m wondering if there were any damages too in Mexicali?

I live in Los Angeles and felt it too! It made us feel motion sick too. It wasn’t the standard shakey quake…felt like we were on a boat. I’m glad it wasn’t worse!
