Anaheim here....the ground literally thrust upward several times, and then the shaking seemed to drag on awhile.

Seemed vertical, and rather long...

But it did last longer that would be expected for a small quake. Small that is unless it was centered in Missouri.

lol..

“went on for over a minute.”

Seriously? (I wonder if your perception was influenced by the shaking?) In any case, stay safe.

I started to think after several seconds that it was just me and that the moving had stopped. But I looked and my chair was still a-rockin’!

No. I think the 3.1 was an aftershock. It’s still showing the original 5.0

Try very hard not to be in the shower during an earthquake!

Real hard.

Gotta believe that it was at least a five, and Long Beach went up, sideways, the other way, and up some more...
