It lasted at least 10 seconds or a little longer.
The house was noticeably moving.

My hanging lamps are still shaking. What was weird is that there was no noise at all, I just kinda felt like I was dizzy and the house was moving. Lasted about 2 minutes.

Felt it in North San Diego county. Lasted probably 30 seconds to a minute and seemed to come in two distinct waves. First one smaller, second larger. Rattled windows and dishes in the china cabinet, shook the chandelier. Definitely could feel it throughout the house. Almost strong enough to knock things over on the desk, but not quite.

Our den door began to move back and forth. A chandelier in our family room began swinging. I was worried about it being a problem with the house, but our pool water was sloshing.

We’re in Phoenix.

A very long roller here in Yorba Linda. I don’t think I’ve ever felt one go on that long. The doors swung back and forth on their hinges for a full minute or two. Nothing fell over here, however, so we feel lucky!

EXACTLY! Yes, that was it -- there was no noise! That's why it was so weird! Up here in north Orange County up in a little coastal mountain range at about 1100 elevation, we just rocked and swayed gently for what seemed like 20 to 30 seconds. Very weird.

Usually, a) the quakes I've felt were more jolting, and b) they made a lot of noise because the house creaking around and rattling is noisy. The Northridge one sounded like about 5,000 freight trains heading straight toward me. Woke me up out out of a sound sleep right before it hit.

I’m in San Diego. Felt like about a 5.0 from where I am.

Went through Whittier (5.9), Landers (7.1) and Northridge (6.9).

Moderate shaking for about 30 seconds.
