Look at all the aftershock activity

96 aftershocks -- ninety-six!!, ranging from 3.0 to 5.4. And that site doesn't even show the ones that fall below 3.0.

Holy smokes!

Felt it here in La Quinta, but it wasn't really scary and we didn't have any damage. I'm surprised because I have a bunch of large decorative pots and platters above my kitchen cabinets and nothing fell off, or even looks like it moved at all. It was strong, but not really scary. Maybe because it was more of a rolling feeling than a jolting action.

My wife kept on refreshing this site that shows seismic activity - - all night it was "and there's a 3.4 . . . and a 3.2 . . . and a 4.0". She couldn't get enough of it.

Funny thing is, we were in a car when the 7.2 happened and totally missed it! We got home five minutes after it happened, and all of our neighbors are outside talking about it. Five years of living out here and I've never once felt an earthquake. Twice I thought I did, but one was a sonic boom and the other was just a big truck zooming down our street that rattled the sliding glass door!

I heard that LA Fire is going into emergency response mode. That seems like major over-kill. If nothing happened in San Diego, no way did anything happen in Los Angeles.
L.A fire & the LAPD over-kill everything. I guess its better to be safe then sorry.

Felt it in Manhattan Beach. Mostly a rolling action. The inside bedroom and bathroom doors kept opening and closing, and the dining room chandelier swayed back and forth forever.
