    Holy Moly, I live in Yuma, AZ and we felt it big time here. I was sitting at a stoplight in my Tacoma when my truck started shaking back and forth. I thought the car behind me was playing tricks. Next I thought my truck was idling super rough. Then finally I look up and see the stoplights are swaying back and forth. Funny thing is this one lasted for quite some time. WOW :help:

    I was in Santa Ana, ca in an empty hose doing a bid. Everything was quiet and the house walls started moving. I got really dizzy and thought I was hallucinating. After about 15 seconds I heard the neighbors yell earthquake and I came to my senses.

    You lie... noone lives in Yuma! ;)

    Seriously though, we were outside near the pool and all the sudden, the pool started splashing like someone just did a cannon-ball... except noone was even remotely close to or in the pool. CRAZY SHIT YO!

    Anyone in SoCal feel it? I was in a refrigerator/cooler at work stacking stuff and didn't feel a thing. My coworkers were yelling "earthquake" since our backrooms have about 7 pallets of soda that are stacked 50-60 ft high each. I thought it was some joke so I kept working until I saw the lights shaking :eek:
