  • 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.
  • Felton - Was lying in bed and felt bed shake and heard house rattle. Daughter in next room getting ready for school did not notice. After a little bit of shaking the house rumbled or vibrated for about 10 more seconds.
  • 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.
  • Philo Ca 95466 - rattled my windows
  • Ferndale - No damage

    1. Felt the quake here in NW Iowa...things hanging in house swayed...shade handles swaying, a wind chime inside house swayed for 15 minutes after initial quake. Haven't felt anything like this since the major Alaska quake in the '60's. This was strange...

    2. Megan Hull says:

      @ 11:26 A.M. I felt my bedroom on the 2nd floor shake, seemingly from side to side for a few seconds.

    3. I can't say I felt this quake. I I've in Milo MAINE, at precisely the same exact time I got woken up out of a dead sleep and thought my roof was caving in. My boys were still awake and it jumped them as well. I don't know where to go to report something I felt that's not on the charts, when I came here I seen this quake was 3 minutes before what I felt. Maybe I can be directed into the right direction as to where I go to report such an event. It lasted maybe 4-5 seconds after I awoke.. I was worried it was something else but after investigating my whole house, inside and out, I was determined it had to have been a quake. I have felt then in the past and my experience was about the same.

    4. a little rumble then loud bang.

    5. Kristina Diekema says:

      Kalamazoo--- Our entire neighborhood shook. We thought a plane was crashing into our house. Our house shook for close to a minute, After the quake our walls reverberated for a minute. My son in law was sleeping in the basement and he thought that we were about to die. That was something I would rather not do again.. lol

    6. Loud, rumbling noise. Felt a rolling vibration.

    7. At 1:13AM 1/25/2013 felt shaking and everything on my walls rattled. Windows shook, and there was a slight sway of my building.
