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..

That was wild feeling it here in Phoenix. My 125 gal fish tank had a big wave in it.

My Wife was on the phone to our Nephew in Yuma, He said all the cars around him were shaking (stopped), then it hit us in Escondido & just rolled awhile. I was re-wireing some walls that were bad & glad he was on the phone to tell us before hand, or I would have thought I was blowing the house up !

I think it was one of the more impressive quakes I've been in....but it still beats floods, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, freezing rain, looking for your car in the snow & finding out you just dug out the wrong one ! EVERY YEAR ! Screw That !

At first I didn't want to believe...but then it kept going a bit and I got up off of my bed (was reading at the moment) to check on our dogs. It felt like I was dizzy but ran downstairs to guard the doggies...Being in So Cal though, we should already be used to it...Hope everyone's okay!!!

I was just blogging on another site yesterday about bolting my four post lift to the floor.....

Yesterday I changed the oil in the Vette, El Camino and Camaro. With the Camaro lowered about 1", the bottom part of the front fascia hits the wheel stop plate on the front of the lift. So I take them off. Then I realize the bolts actually hold the main drive on rails from moving side to side so I just put the bolts back in and snug them up.

So today I'm out in the garage doing the front brakes on Karen's car with the El Camino and Camaro out in the driveway and the Vette up on the lift. I had the middle door open and there was a nice breeze blowing. I hear the lift "creaking" a little and think "damn I didn't know a small breeze could do that". So it starts creaking even more and now I'm thinking WTF did I do yesterday that could make it sound like that. Another 10 seconds goes by and now I can see the top of the lift posts moving about 1/2' ! WTF, the lift might be falling apart, WTF did I do yesterday that could cause that (I think in about a nanosecond).

So I run over to plug the lift motor in, the lift is making real creaking noises now and I lift it up to release the stops. I dropped that car about 2 feet the fastest I have ever dropped a car on there. I had to stop about 2 feet from the floor since I had a shop vac and fan underneath on the floor. As I'm standing thinking how in the world I could have F-ed something up, Karen opens the door from the house and goes "Did you feel that?". I said "Feel what?", I didn't feel a thing. We just had an earthquake, a 6.9 (now 7.2) down in Baja Mexico. The water in our pool had waves cresting over the edges and it was still moving 5 minutes later.

Next weekend I'm renting a Hilti hammer drill and securing the lift to the floor....
