Seriously though...glad you're okay and no damage, babetoo.

My daughter felt this quake you speak of all the way up in Lake Elsinore. She said a lot of people are talking about how long it lasted...aboout 2 minutes she said...but then maybe it just seemed that long since it firghtened her.
i don't know about lake elsinore but it lasted at least a min. here in escondido, and we are closer to the center in mexico. it seemed endless to me as well. had a few things knocked off but no big damage. i live in a mobile home and it was really shaking. i was in the one near colinga, and this was worse.

It was a nice, long, gentle roller here in L.A. We got the very end of the wave. I was dozing off at work and for a few seconds I thought it was my breathing, but an employee quickly reminded me that we were in the middle of a quake.

Oh, I felt it, and I was in Hacienda Heights. It rollllllllled. But had I not been sitting down, I probably wouldn't have felt it...who knows. I've been through many earthquakes, and they never get any easier to deal with.

i felt two aftershocks on sunday night. one was enough that thomas took note. if there are good ones, that was a good one, releasing more pressure.
