I knew it was pretty big because the earthquake made me dizzy, but I didn't realize it was a 6.9.
Lucky for LA it hit much further south, but I hope nobody got hurt.

This felt like the one that hit the Bay Area in 1989, but not as intense obviously. Wave-like.
Man, they do freak me out a little now. Sammy, my cat freaked and hid under the bed. And like a true Internet geek, I was trying to twitter about it as I felt it.
