No, this one was exactly at 9:00 p.m. here on the West Coast. I was looking at my computer at the time it struck, and verified the time.

Reminds me of that 5.0 we had in the San Bruno area about a month before Loma Prieta.

I heard it will last at the very least 60 days and will continue to build strength as it rotates it’s way across the USA.

Felt it here in Pacheco. Pretty good jolt. I was laying down watching TV when my bed was rocking back and forth. I immediately got up and ran outside to find other tenants were outside chatting about the tremor.

It has been a very very long time I haven’t felt one. I think the last time I felt something this strong was last year.
