    I felt it here in LA. My computer desk started shaking a bit and I didn't make much of it. But the second a cup fell I ran outside. Turns out is was like a 5.8 just south of Chino Hills.

    I felt it down in San Diego. It shook my car a little bit. I got nostalgic about Japan for a second then my thought shifted to, "I hope the lamp post doesn't fall apart next to my car."

    I live in the San Bernardino mountains, so all I got was one small jolt.
    I felt sorry for the Chino peeps tho, they've got lotsa work ahead of them.

    I felt the one that was in April, Indiana apparently gets more earthquakes than I first thought. I could feel the shaking from one of the aftershocks, though I missed the initial strike.

    i felt it :]
    funfunfun
    we were in class
    and they made us go outside
    and stay there in case of aftershocks
    there was this paranoid lady who was like
    "STAY AWAY FROM THE BUILDING #€@%#@!"
    and we were like 50 feet away..
    anyway. i heard it was 5.8 (in chino hills)
    im glad there were no serious injuries and damage done
