Earthquake — Who Felt It?

According to preliminary reports on the U.S. Geological Survey’s website, an earthquake measuring 5.0 struck near San Bernardino at about 7:50 p.m. this evening. I felt light to moderate tremors for about 10 seconds here at the beach. Anybody else?

UPDATE: USGS now lists the earthquake’s strength as 4.5.  Before the 5.0 listing, the initial report I saw was 4.9. The number may well change again shortly.  It’s normal for the figure to fluctuate for a while, apparently because the initial reports are straight from the computers before being reviewed by USGS seismologists.

  1. Matt,

    Here in San Dimas the earthquake was a quick, but strong, jolt that lasted maybe two seconds. We are about 35 miles west of the epicenter near the 210 and 57 Freeways next to the foothills.
