That's because you were close to the epicenter. When we had that Easter Day quake a couple of years ago down in Imperial County (or was it Mexico?) I knew it was very strong but very far away since it felt like I was on a boat for at least 10-15 seconds.

I was in Placentia too. There was a shake, but I don't fall out of bed for anything less than a 6.0.

I remember that. I was in San Diego County and even though it was closer to the Imperial Valley, it was still scary! I thought my house was breaking apart because you could hear it rumbling and the house was twisting. Only one thing fell down. It was very odd. When Earthquakes start, you have no idea how big or how long they will be, so it can be pretty intimidating!

I was basically right on top of the epicenter of one around 4.7 in the late 1980s. No rolling, just a big bang. Once I stood back up, I thought a truck had run into the building.

Did not feel this one but heard it here in Corona. Probably the first one I heard rumbling but no shaking or swaying of hanging lights and such. It started and I turned to my wife and said, "earthquake." Then went back to whatever I was doing.

Couple more small jolts. One last night at 11:23 PDT and another less than an hour ago at 9:33. Slept through the one last night, the one this AM just a small quick jolt, again like a quick left jab. My cat ran across the room, but other than that, ho hum, proceed as normal. Only concern is that these two small ones are pre the widely predicted Big One.
