I live in Long Beach about 40 mi away. Didn't feel a thing, but woke up around that time. Didn't hear any car alarms going off. Since the earthquake was on the side of Catalina facing away from the mainland, maybe the shockwaves bounced off in that direction(?)

The quake was beneath the ocean floor (which -- along with the fact that it struck around 2 AM -- is why most didn't notice it).

I still use the "Calif." abbreviation ...and nobody can make me stop.

Woke me up...started to question if I should get up or not, decided not to. This felt like a minor bump compared to the Easter quake a few years ago.

/Just East of San Diego

AP (Associated Press) Stylebook says Calif. is okay.

http://www.inkhouse.net/twelve-common -mistakes-of-ap-style/

"State abbreviations. AP doesn't follow standard ZIP code abbreviations - e.g., MA for Massachusetts. Each state has its own abbreviation - e.g., Mass. for Massachusetts; N.Y. for New York; Calif. for California; Fla. for Florida and so on. However, eight states - Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Ohio, Texas and Utah - aren't abbreviated in datelines or text. Omit state abbreviations in datelines for well-known U.S. cities such as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, etc."

6.3 is not huge, but still more than a little roller. Been there, done that.

It woke me up, but I'm on the seventh floor of my building so the shaking was probably magnified a bit for me.

trappedspirit: Not. News.


Congrats. It only took you, let's see, eight years to figure out Fark.

Don't think a 6.3 would have woken me up when I lived in San Diego.
