  • San Francisco CA - It was just a few minutes ago (06:50 PST. I felt the first small shake for just a second or two but my partner in the room with me did not. Then there was another, still very mild but about 5-10 seconds duration which we both felt)
  • McKinleyville CA - Bed wiggled back and forth very briefly. No apparent damage.
  • Millbrae - Felt like earthquake hit twice, almost thought it was the Caltrain until the 2nd jolt happened.

  • San Francisco - I woke up an de my glass closet doors were lightly rattling, I could feel the room shaking. It felt like trucks passing but for longer. I live in San Francisco in a third story flat.
  • Grants Pass, Oregon - Laying in bed and felt 2 tremors. Mild shaking
  • Arcata - Woke up from sleeping, heard building shaking (like if strong winds where shaking or hitting the building). Earthquake ended shortly, no fallen objects from the inside of room.
  • Los Angeles, CA - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zq5tTZLQqpw
  • Eureka CA - I would call it a 3 ....
  • Hayfork - thought my big dog was scratching himself next to my bed, as the bed shook, then stopped, and then shook again.
  • San Francisco - door was moving back and forth
  • San Francisco, CA - Multiple quake events felt. Movement ran north-south
  • Eureka - Felt a pretty strong side to side shake which lasted long enough to feel it go back and forth, followed by another smaller shake that was quicker
  • Arcata, CA - Woke me up
  • San Francisco - Was inside my apartment at the top floor of a four story building when the earthquake occurred. The building felt like it was swaying which prompted me to look at the shelving and dresser tops which only had some objects moving. Initially it didn't feel like an earth quake, but when the swaying lasted longer I knew it was an earthquake.

    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.

    1. 11/1/16 @ 11:28 p.m. Sitting at computer and the screen started shaking. It felt like someone heavily stomping in the next room. I noticed the time and became alert. The strong vibrations went on for several seconds. I immediately went to FB- social media, and numerous people were also reporting feeling this in the Tulsa area.
