Gentle shaking felt here in Brea. Very eerie and long. It's the first earthquake I've noticed since moving to Cali 2 years ago.

Merged three threads made at about the same time in case there's any confusion.

There was another 6.2 quake not far further north up the fault off the coast of Canada. The ring of fire is a tad active at the moment it seems.

yeah this was one of those "am I feeling dizzy for no real reason" quakes. I wasn't sure what was going on.

I live in Fresno, which is usually a good distance from epicenters, and it was probably the strongest one I've felt here. I thought I was feeling dizzy until I noticed things in my room were swaying.

Looks like the epicenter is equidistant between Fresno, LA, and Las Vegas.

90020 here, felt really weird, then noticed the blinds swaying. normally id be cool, but have a toddler now so made me super anxious. epicenter was ~150 miles away, so I can assume people closer to it really had some shaking, anything over 6 you can feel.

Beach cities here. Was a gentle roll like on a cruise. Long enough where you're like 'should I be doing something now?'

Felt it here in Victorville. Started off gentle and then built up. I had to make sure none of the stuff on my shelves was going to fall.

Felt it ever so slightly in the central valley. Was sitting down but I was pretty much the only person in the house who felt it. Thought I was imagining things lol

I was taking a shit when this happened. Felt it immediately and started getting a little worried because it lasted much longer than usual.
