I felt it. It was relatively minor and isn't up on the USGS site unless it was the one in Long Beach.

We must have felt the magnitude 7 centered northwest of Long Beach since nothing else new is on the USGS's site. 5 isn't a big quake and, as is usual, San Diego is to far from the action to more then a little shaking.

USGS is reporting a 3 and a 1 after shocks as well now. It's definitely happened in LA.

An earthquake struck at 8:39 p.m. with a magnitude 5.0. It was centered about 1 mile east of Lennox.

Barely felt it but having lived here a while I had a pretty good idea what it was. Far away and relatively small though so I would've missed it if I sneezed, lol. Not that I'm complaining mind you the ones you really feel are freaky, heh.
