I was sitting in our hangar at work and then I got this slight nauseating feeling and everything started to bang louder and louder and then I noticed all the lighting fixtures were swaying pretty hard and I said to my co workers "Yeah ummmm I think theres an earthquake bro going on!!" and he was like "Ok.." and went back to work. LOL

All the planes here at LAX that were taxing were put on hold and told not to move...crazy times!

I felt it here in Phoenix about 2 minutes after it happened. It was pretty noticeable. Had a wobbly feeling to it, and it rotated in a circle. It didnt make anything move in the house, but I could definitely feel it as could my family.

High Desert checking in. It last about a minute here. Long slow lateral movement. It made a wave of pool water splash up and out on both sides. The wave was at least a foot high. I have 15 foot high ceilings and a chandelier in the dining room is still swaying.

North OC reporting here. Long wave-like effect here. It was interesting trying to remain balanced while going #1 at the same time

I hope everyone in SD and Mexicali is ok!!

I'm originally from Yuma and was on the phone with my parents during 2 of the aftershocks... Pretty intense stuff. They have lived there 70 years and been through many of them and they said this was the worst.

+1 my worst as well!

I wasn't here during Northridge, but since '02 and definately the strongest one I've felt in LA. I do live 9 floors up, so the swaying was intensified. Glad I don't get sea sick easily!

Edit: Now 7.2! I knew it was going to go up!

Actually I was at Edwards AFB during the Northridge Quake... that was my biggest even though I had been through many of them in growing up in Yuma.

Looks like they just upgraded it to 7.2 now..
