Really shook for quite a while..built up slowly but no damage at my place other than freaked out people and cats. Water sloshed in the pool quite a bit, nothing fell but everything shook. no damage being reported locally yet. This is the biggest quake we've had for a long time. I hope it isn't a foreshock.

small aftershock just hit.

I'd guess perhaps four something.

It was sharp and short, kind of strange.

stay safe.

As I type there is/was a strange subsonic vibration that built up to raise the hairs on my arms then subsided before I could finish typing. I've been through a lot of quakes but never felt that before. Sure hope it doesn't build again.

Just checked with my roommate and verified the vibration really occurred.

BOB prepped and ready if required.

I wanted to say, that having people in Arizona report feeling an Earthquake was kind of new to me, I am not used to that.

Also, I would like to bring up the fact I read earlier this week that Carlsbad New Mexico had like a 4.6 quake. This baffled me as I grew up nearby Carlsbad and for decades we never had any earthquakes that I could feel.

It just seems kind of out of place and odd.

Of course the earthquake you are linking is near Baja. WHich has earthquakes all the time...no surprises there.

But feeling quakes in NM and Arizona is really weird.

I hope there is no considerable damage we really dont need another big natural disaster, i could not stand the thought of thousands more people dying from something which we cannot stop from happening

The devestation in Haiti and Chili and reminders how inferior we really are to the Earth it decides if we live here or not.

Weird. All the dogs in my neighborhood were barking for a few hours. But I am in Seattle. Wonder if animals could tell from this far away.

I just wrote a topic and got it closed... there was an entire string of earthquakes across California, not just the Mexico one.

6.9 Baja California, Mexico
earthquake.usgs.gov...

4.5 in Northern California.
earthquake.usgs.gov... -broken

3.4 - Southern California
earthquake.usgs.gov... -broken

All of California just shifted right now!
earthquake.usgs.gov...

-edit update-
3.6 and 3.8 Southern California
earthquake.usgs.gov...
earthquake.usgs.gov...

2.3 Northern California?
earthquake.usgs.gov...

They are changing around the numbers..... and breaking links.

Felt it in Orange County, CA. Didn't even realize what was happening until I noticed my door swaying a little bit and the need to vomit, which was new to me. Never felt one that lasted so long before, compared to the typical short lived forever feeling quakes.

It's possible.

Perhaps the quake can create really high pitch tones that are very loud but yet you and I do not hear them.

And maybe only animals with highly sensitive ears like Dogs, can pick up these high pitch tones?

Just a theory that may explain the dog's actions.

Felt it at China Lake Calif.
Very lite rolling motion.

Roommate can't get a cell signal at the moment, so some slight damage has occurred somewhere.

Doesn't seem like much has been hurt overall, though. We're built fairly well around here. I worry more about it setting fire to something. Friend from north of me just called and reports no damage in her community.

Felt it in Long Beach, CA -- that was the longest quake I have felt - no sharp jolts, just rolling and rolling.

I was in LA for one of the ones in the early 70's, and recall looking down Olympic avenue west.. and seeing what appeared to be ocean waves, rushing towards me.. it was the ground physically moving, which was visible because of the angle if incidence,,

Your description of the subsonic vibration intrigued me, how long in seconds, would you say it occurred? And as it was subsonic.. you could 'feel' it right?

It is as likely that EVERYONE has picked up their cell fone just as you did and there are no circuits left

Around 40 minutes ago my freind who goes to UCLA told me he felt an earthquake so I decided to check here for it. Lets just hope that theres not gonna be any other major quakes after this.

an 18 - 24 cycles per second sound at high amplitude will induce nausea but does not 'sound' loud cause the ear doesnt reproduce much at those frequencies.

Shaking again right now.

The subsonic vibration lasted about 20-30 seconds. At first I wasn't sure of what I was feeling, or even if I was feeling but then it was unmistakeable. It lifted the hairs on y arms and the back of my neck then swiftly subsided. There's a lot of granite and quartz around here....I wouldn't be surprised if it were some sort of piezoelectric effect.
