I seem to remember a fairly large one when I was a kid...was in Tierrasanta, if I recall correctly. But not nearly as extended as this one.
yea, i was just thinking 'it's a good time to go to ace hardware and start securing stuff, for any future happenings that may arise'....latches for the cabinets, that sort of thing.

I'm in La Jolla and we were all eating lunch when the entire house began rattling and flexing back and forth. It was insane. Then we ran outside and stood on the street and our legs were bending because of the rolling. You could see the street "rolling"...

Have grown up in CA and never felt something like that!

First one I've felt since coming to CA 1.5 years ago. I was in Pancho Villa's and some cake mixes and bottles of detergent fell off the shelves. No glass bottles, though.

How does this one compare to the Northridge (LA area) one?

it was 7.9, but don't recall how 'deep' it was, and it was obviously closer geographically to SD and all of LA, than the baja one today.

It was upgraded from 6.9 to 7.2, NOT 7.9.

Northridge was "only" 6.7 but had a strong surface phenonmenom. Mexicali appears a bit closer to here than Northridge. I suppose depth of epicenter has an impact, but I not a geologist, Jim.
