... and I wasn't going to post at all, but apparently it surprises people that the earthquake was noticeable in Santa Cruz. I assure you, you could feel it. I was in a restaurant at the time, and the ground shook, and the lights swayed madly. When I got back to my 6th floor apartment, several light objects had fallen off of their shelves and stacks.

I think the 7.1 quake my freshman year felt worse, in that we could actually feel the aftershocks in Claremont, but this was the worst one I've been in since.

Also, here's a link to report your quake experience to the USGS site.
