  1. Wow, I felt my first earthquake!! I didn’t realize that’s what it was — I just thought someone next door or downstairs had slammed a door so hard it shook the building.

  2. Same here in West LA. It had to have been more than a 3.0, felt like an elephant nudged the apartment building…or maybe it was my ex? :P

  3. Earthquake?!?! I missed it?!?! I was in Westchester around 9 and in Santa Monica during the second – didn’t feel anything. (Was that 5 a.m. or 5 p.m.?)

  4. In Sherman Oaks it felt like a giant kicked the building once, then again about 15 seconds later. The whole wall shook, but in two giant shakes.
