Seriously, it felt like it was gonna be another 7.2. The same thing happened afterwards aswell, which was the circular swaying motion. It actually shook me up a bit.

That'll wake you up for sure...freaked out my roomate.

Cell phones not working at the moment.

No damage here though, just a big shake.

Edit to add USGS downgraded it to 5.7

I'm about 100 miles NNW of the epicenter and not much happened, just some hanging things swaying, and a little slosh out of the tub. Only about 5 seconds or so of motion. No aftershocks felt.

This end of the San Andreas has been moving a bit lately, though:

I'm here in L.A. and we felt it pretty good; just a ceiling fan was swaying; and my nerves. Scary. And yes - I live in L.A. and am still afraid of earthquakes -

Maybe that one kid doing the earthquake predictions for California was right?

Ocotillo, CA is about 30mins away, and where the earthquake hit, Im right in that area. It felt wierd, I could feel my feet being pushed up.

I don't know but, something is odd.

Nah. It's Mexico tilting due to the oil flowing into the Gulf- east is sinking, west is lifting.

I'm seeing lots of after shocks in eQuake...are my California neighbors and friends going to stay up late tonight posting on ATS? I hope so. I don't think I'd sleep after that.

Two more in the last few minutes:

MAP 3.4 2010/06/15 04:48:06 32.690 -115.932 3.8 8 km ( 5 mi) SE of Ocotillo, CA
MAP 3.5 2010/06/15 04:47:23 32.694 -115.926 1.5 8 km ( 5 mi) SE of Ocotillo, CA

Still haven't felt any of the aftershocks though.

My dad was just in Calexico, waiting for my grandma to come from Mexicali, he was in the car but he said he didnt feel anything.

But he did say that a girl got out her car shaking and scared.

Sure, I'll be up burning the midnight oil...working all night tonight, so I'll let you know if we get any more...as long as we don't fall off into the ocean that is


Seriously though, I'm in the beach cities about 100 miles north of this EQ, so it wasn't all that strong up here, but it felt like a rather strange kind of earthquake movement...sort of like a circular type of motion and then one big "ka-thump."

Been 20 2.5+ mag quakes in the area since, too. I think this is activity continuing north from the Baja 7.7 earlier this year.

Am in NZ but chatting to a friend in SoCal who felt the initial quake very strongly - said was very "loud" and swaying.

Yeah tell me about it. I felt my feet getting pushed up, and off balance. Then when I got my little brother and myself outside. I sat down to call my sister to make sure she and the kids were alright. While I sat down I couldn't see straight. Just as if you spun around 10 times and sat down. Thats almost as good as I can explain.

Oh and I just felt an aftershock, dogs are barking.....
