Felt kind of like a big rocking chair.

I tried again, and unless I'm reading it wrong, there was a magnitude 5 quake centered between Los Angeles and Long Beach.

Are your friends okay?  If I felt it this far away, it was pretty strong.  Where is your thread?

4.7 quake renews worries about destructive Newport-Inglewood fault

Quote

Seismologists suspect that the magnitude-4.7 earthquake that shook a large stretch of Southern California on Sunday night erupted along the Newport-Inglewood fault, which experts have long feared would produce a devastating temblor.

"The initial focal mechanism is consistent with a slip on the Newport-Inglewood fault, which was the source of the damaging 1933 Long Beach earthquake," the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement. "Two of the early aftershocks, however, are west of the Newport-Inglewood fault trend. Later aftershocks will help to define the fault plane that ruptured."

USGS officials are not sure whether Sunday's temblor occurred on the Newport-Inglewood but noted that a 1920 quake in the same area erupted on that fault line.

The quake hit at 8:39 p.m. and was centered near Lennox, a community between Inglewood and Hawthorne and east of Los Angeles International Airport. Lasting about 15 seconds, the temblor could be felt as far away as the high desert, Indio, Carpinteria and San Diego County. There were no reports of major damage or injuries.

The earthquake was "a bit deep," originating 8.4 miles below the surface, said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hough. "That tends to make it less sharp -- less of a jerky, abrupt motion."

As a result, most of the region felt the quake as a rolling motion, though some closer to the center may have felt a jolt....
Yep, 15 seconds is what I reported to USGS, when I finally found the right page, and rolling.  Glad you had no damage, RHW.  You're a lot closer to the center.  My first thought had been another Salton Sea quake, but it was milder, at least where I am, and a lot shorter.
