Holyshit! It's still shakin!!!

That was the strongest one I've felt in a looooong time. I was watching the news and the studio was rockin'.


So far they're saying 5.6 but I'm sure that'll change one way or the other. Could be felt as far South as San Diego and some reports of shaking in Las Vegas.

I was home (sick) at my computer when it started shaking and the first thing that comes to mind - is this the BIG ONE? Because it starts slow and then it increases over time. It shook for about 20 seconds.

But I got down under my desk as soon as I realized it was going to get bigger.
