  • Lake Elsinore - Bed was shaking and windows rattled for 2-3 seconds followed by another two seconds of very light vibration (maybe 15-20% of main quake)
  • Lake Elsinore - Strong sound and lots of viviatrion
  • Lake Elsinore - About two seconds of very rough shaking. No damage but things were moved on shelves. Scary!
  • Lake Elsinore - 3 seconds no damage
  • Lake Elsinore - I felt it twice. Friend told me they felt it earlier around 9 p.m. or so I felt it at 12:22 am and I felt it at 1:02 or 1:03 a.m. . The midnight when I felt and heard with minimal shaking but more noise and everything. The second one I heard it was a little bit more shaky. Both lasted at least 5 Seconds or so
  • Lake Elsinore - Woke up from a shake and noise then a few larger pushing type shaking. Very quick 3 it 4 seconds or less
  • Lake Elsinore - Very strong jolt , shaking which got stronger. Shock are bed and windows. I thought that was the big one.
  • Lake elsinore - No damage lasted about 3 seconds.. Felt a little stronger than the one 2 weeks 2am.
  • Murrieta - Started slow rolling then turned into a jolt. Short during, maybe 10 seconds.
  • Lake Elsinore - Woke up at 1:00 am from a pretty good jolt. No damage
  • Lake Elsinore - I just felt like shaking nothing in out house fell or broke so we're good (:
  • Lake Elsinore - I was laying in bed when I heard this loud grumbling noise and then my bed and sliding door in the bedroom started shaking quite a bit . It lasted about 5-8 seconds and then after about 15 sec I felt it again but not as harsh as the first time .
  • Lake Elsinore - Bed shaking 2-3 seconds enough to wake us. Not enough to knock things over.
  • Menifee - Brief but strong
  • Lakeland Village - Woke me up.
  • Wildomar - Two separate things happened, 1. loud pop or crack with house shaking followed 2. A slight rolling feeling. All lasting not more than a few seconds, maybe 3 sconds or so. No damage noted.
  • Lake Elsinore - Moderate shaking
  • Chino - Woke me up after I felt the light shake and heard the house creek.
  • lake elsinore - awaken by the shake around 1 am.
  • Lakeland Village - This one felt like the last one a few weeks ago. Strong shaking and loud. The only way for me to describe is as if I was living by train tracks and a train was coming by fast the gone.
  • Lake Elsinore - No damage. Heard glass break somewhere outside as the shaking started. The hard shaking lasted about 4 seconds continued with very light shaking for another 3 seconds or so. Looked at the clock it was 1:02 am.

  • Lake Elsinore - We awoke to a loud boom and a sharp jolt.
  • CANYON LAKE - Similar to the nearby quake a few weeks ago, I heard the loud "snap" as the earth's crust slipped and heard the approaching ground waves trembling thru the canyon. (We get very good acoustic warning in Canyon Lake.) Then the violent shaking lasted for a short 3 seconds. So much recent concentrated shallow seismic activity near Lake Elsinore and the bigger quakes in Mexico that add stress to the northward plates makes me think there's a bigger one coming soon.
  • Lake Elsinore - Shaking woke me out of my sleep, ran down hall to my 12yr son’s room, he slept through it exhausted after basketball tournament earlier in evening but it was a scary one & I’ve grown up in Cali so not usually afraid of Quakes. Glad it didn’t grow in intensity though. Prepare & be safe.

    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.
