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.

Magnitude

6.9

32.093°N, 115.249°W

BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO

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.

Can you help us out?
