My house was swaying for about 25-30 seconds. I just saw on the news that the epicenter was in Mexicali, Mexico and the magnitude was 6.9, which is pretty big. Hope everyone is OK otherwise.

Channel 24, (The City/County Government Channel) has been knocked off the air.

Equipment failure? Or are they preparing for some kind of emergency response?

Felt it here near Knott's Berry Farm
Kinds felt like a stir pot. I felt it coming about a minute before it got big.

Our cell phones don't work, anyone else has this issue? Both stopped working right after the quake, but the houseline is fine. If I try to call it from the house line, it goes straight to voice mail even though it's on.

The office that I'm in started shaking a tiny bit, and then really started rocking. All the students and myself ran out of the building. My cell phone is still working (T-Mobile).

I haven't tried to call anyone but txt messages weren't getting sent. I would assume there are cell towers down there since there are radio and tv towers we get transmissions from in Mexico.

We felt it all the way out in Redondo Beach! That's a good 444 km away, at least. And it was a pretty strong rolling here for a full 15 seconds. It was strong enough that I'm still nauseated as if from motion sickness.

Hope no one was hurt where it was strongest!
