  1. In San Pedro. Felt it for 10-20 seconds, moderate rolling the whole time, but nothing heavy duty. We had shit literally fly across the room, though.

  2. Our alcohol bottles started rattling and I thought, if it gets bigger, that’s gonna suck to clean up. Nothing fell down in West LA.

  3. Here in the SGV didn’t feel a thing. Didn’t know about it until the 10pM news on Fox came on. You guys get all the fun!

  4. Felt it at Original Thai BBQ in Hollywood. Also thought it was a truck, as it didn’t feel that hard, but enough to know wasn’t no truck! Lot’s of people were freaked out, and out loud I belted “Meh.”

  5. I was on Yucca, just behind the Scientology Celebrity Centre (was going to dinner on Franklin, not going to “church”) and didn’t feel a thing. I was parking, but my car was barely moving. I was really dizzy when I got out of my car, but thought it was just because I hadn’t eaten all day. However, my husband was parking his car and Bronson and definitely felt it. He thought someone was shaking his car side to side.

  6. I was on La Cienega at the Coronet for the Jonathan Coulton show and thought the lady behind me had kicked my seat. great show, by the way!

  7. Wait a minute…I was at the JoCo show at the Coronet! How did I miss flowerofhighrank?

    Similar description from others in our group. Felt like someone behind kicking the seat. Pretty mild quake, but a great show.
