I just felt it. USGS says it's 5.0
If the USGS numbers are correct, then this is a pretty large quake.
For comparison, the Whittier Narrows quake was 5.9, and the Northridge quake was 6.7.
The USGS has a feature on their site where they survey people to see how the quake felt to them. What's fascinating is that it's like a map of where the wealthier, more "wired" people live. If not that, then it shows where people who know about USGS.gov live. Perhaps it's an indicator of youth.
