    Looks like it had a small precursor. Let's hope there is not a bigger one to come.

    We were here (San Diego area) for the Hector Mine quake in 1999, which was a bigger quake, but we sure felt this one more. Our apartment was swaying all over the place. I bet Tijuana has had lots of damage.
    I hear Yuma, AZ got it bad.

    Funny thing. My small apartment complex empties out almost immediatey, and we were all in the parking lot with our laptops posting about the earthquake.

    We're right on the beach, within sight of Mexico. The ocean seems to be acting weird still, waves not breaking normally, but maybe that's just my fevered imagination.

    I always report there and it is really accurate. I usually get an email when there is a shaker but i haven't even gotten that yet.

    My kids are coming for Easter dinner tonight but they are reporting in from various locations.

    Is it true that you are supposed to go out side if there is an earthquake? I dont know if I would think that was any safer. Wow, I feel for ya'll. Praying that was it.

    First there were a couple of big "bumps", then smaller ones, and everything started rattling-- about 20 seconds worth.

    My son was online gaming, and after the shaking here stopped, one of the players in Santa Monica felt it.

    One of my boys is in West Hollywood and he said his whole building was shaking.
    My Escondido son felt it and the other boys all felt it here locally.
