Felt it here for a good 15-20 seconds in Vista.
Wow...felt it approximately 100 miles north if it was in SD...
I’m 70 miles NE in southern Riverside county (Murrietta).
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.
They just added this:
5 minutes ago 6.9 Baja California, Mexico Map
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.
Felt it here in the San Fernando Valley too. Very long.
Felt it up here in OC. Close to a four up here it seemed.
That went on for sometime. At least it felt like it did.
Did someone just released the Kracken.

Salton Sea to Sea of Cortez
Just felt an after shock about 20 secs ago.
Another little one just now
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.
TY for the info...just felt an aftershock.
It will be shakey for most of the next week for sure.
That one was bad and lonnnggggg, things popping off of shelves, lost my computer connection when it came unplugged, stuff on the floor around the house.
Just got another after shock.
I think we are having an aftershock. My lamps are moving again.
Earthquake party, someone bring the beer!
Just had a 4.1 hit the Geysers area
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!
35 to 40 seconds per news.
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.
