7.2 Earthquake in Baja California

Felt it here in L.A. as a slow shaking. (I was busy playing Wii and didn’t realize there was a quake until Yoshi told me twice that the building was shaking. And it wasn’t until I stopped playing and stood up that I realized that we were STILL swaying.)

UPDATE: USGS Upgraded the quake from 6.9 to 7.2
