I believe the depth was 7KM, which is very shallow.
A 6'er at that shallow of a depth would certainly give everybody a wakeup call REAL fast. I would be very surprised if it didn't cause some damage.edit on 23-8-2011 by leo123 because: (no reason given)

To all the California residents, all your comments about "oh I wouldn't get out of bed for a 6.0, or I've slept through bigger quakes than that.....YOU HAVEN'T HAD ONE LIKE THAT, IN QUITE AWHILE!!!! Get over yourselves, just because you live in quake prone areas, you act like others feeling's and experiences should be discounted.

Update at 2:51 p.m. ET: Verizon Wireless and AT&T say their networks were congested as the quake sent people scrambling for the phones, the Associated Press reports
Verizon Wireless spokesman Tom Pica says there has been no damage to the company's equipment. He says the crush of phone calls made it hard for some customers to get through for about 20 minutes after the quake. That has since began to clear, he says. Sprint says some customers may be experiencing delays..
AT&T: We Have No Reports Of Network Damage But We Are Seeing Heavy Call Volumes
