Yeah, same way I felt it, It was a 5.7, maybe downgraded.

USGS is showing a 5.9 in southern cal. There was another one also, but when I clicked on the map, all I could see was the 5.9.

Lets hope it stays at no damage. It lasted quite some time. Started slow, then it became harder, Our house was swaying for about 10-15 seconds + afterwards. It's one feeling you will never get used too.

Yep i hope so too, It was not very deep at all! Which is a little concerning,

Please make sure you all take care and be ready for aftershocks, or something bigger,

Get your bits together now in case...

Felt it, while reading about earthquakes! Hubby rang me mid quake to say we were having a quake...he must have felt it a few seconds before me being 50 miles closer to the epicenter! I immediately guessed cali/mex border, and probably rather large, since it felt like the easter quake, but not quite as strong. Not to far off, but not the border.

Got downgraded to a 5.4 - Good difference, but nonetheless good enough to make you stay alert.

There have been already at least 20 aftershocks from this. 6 of them of 3.0 or higher.

This whole area has been very active for the last 3 months since the 7.4 in Mexico on Easter.

So a 5.4, and pretty shallow, only 7.3 mile depth. Well it looks like it was a good distance from me here in the southern San Joaquin valley. I did not feel it up here in Bakersfield, so it wasn't as big as first described. The other thread OP was saying 7 point something, and if it was that big, I would definitely felt it here.

Living in Calif, we just expect to have them, I don't worry too much about them, but it's always good to be prepared for a disaster. Lately, I've been stocking up on PB and H2O as well as survival gear. Just In Case.

Nice with the super fast news updates.

It was under 6. The infrastructure will take a hit, but I think they are well prepared to manage this event and clean up.

But, I have to wonder.

When will we see another "big one" like the 1857 Fort Tejon 8.0, or the 1906 SF 7.8??

Is this current release of tension going to keep the area quiet for awhile longer? Or it is an ominous precursor to the long predicted big one that may be on our door steps?

Ive always had this feeling that the West Coast wont actually have the "BIG ONE", but instead, it'll sneak up on the East Coast from left field, then BAM, RIGHT IN THE KISSER


Not to mention that Montreal just had an EQ similar in intensity to this one...you never know?????

Just natures way of saying "HA"....

My $.02

Epi is about 150 miles from me in LA. It kept gently swaying for quite a long time, at least 20 seconds.

Wow an 8.0 - I don't even wanna imagine. This earthquake/aftershock was on the San Jancito and Coyote Creek Fault Zones. Just hope we dont see a pattern of some major quakes occuring in each fault zone.

Yep, sure did.

This one started somewhat like most others then Crack!, with a few more seconds of tremors.

Something in the fault lines must have given way due to tectonic catching and that pressure buildup since the last quake less than a month or so ago.

So far all the quakes in Cali are isolated and do not seem to be a precursor to a 'big one', but I will just hope they aren't and we will see.

Strange it is still showing as 5.9 on Google Earth and the 1.0+ download.

Difficult to say if this is an aftershock or a new quake since that area has still not returned to normal since the 7.2. Technically therefore this is an aftershock of the Baja quake. It certainly has been pumping them out since!

I know you had to be typing while it was still engaged at least I know I was trying to type. I called it stutter typing.

Thought for sure I beat everyone.

Anyways take it way Oozii.
