    That was the weirdest Earthquake I have ever felt!
    I live east of LA, and we felt it pretty good here.
    It was long, like 20 seconds, and very roll-y. It wasn't the jolts that we usually get.

    I'm presently on the Caspian Sea, but my home is on the Pacific side of Baja Norte, about the same distance from TJ that the epicenter was. I'm really hoping that all I've got waiting for me when I get home is a clean up.

    omg! I was in Tecate, baja california, I was in my mom's van. God that was scary the van and all the trees and everything around us was moving back and forth and our van felt like someone was moving it hard, side to side, like when u play around with a car and move up and down or side to side.

    I thought my Easter wine was making me wobble in my chair in the kitchen, but when others felt it, and they had not drank wine, I knew it was not my wine, but an earthquake.
