Not every March, but yes, I live very close to this one. Everyone at Disneyland should have felt it La Habra and Brea are next to Anaheim.

It was quite hard and rough for several seconds here in OC. Disneyland rides were shut down. A water line burst in Fullerton and there is some minor damage in North OC and merchandise off store shelves, a few areas without power. But no reports of any serious damage or injuries.

We felt it all the way in Yucaipa, near foothills of San Bernardino Mountains.

It was centered in Orange County.

Some sources are showing a photo of guests leaving Disneyland and saying it was evacuated. But, using logic, that photo of a crowd of people heading out of the park is actually of guests already crowded on Main Street for viewing of the fireworks show, which was supposed to begin at 9:25, leaving because the show was cancelled. NBC showed aerial coverage and people were later walking around the park. I read the second show of Fantasmic went off with no problem and some rides reopened later.

We felt the 9PM one centered in La Habra, all the way to the beach cities near LAX. It was long and rolling. Seems like it lasted for 45 seconds. No damage, just some swinging light fixtures.

Earthquakes can come at any time. I don't think just in March.

We live in a high rise in downtown San Diego and had just got home from several cocktails at a local watering hole just before 9pm.

So it took me a minute to realize our building was swaying and not me. It moved our chandelier pretty good, and because of the way these buildings are build we swayed for a few seconds, but not real strong down here.

We felt it (something) In Indian Wells. We were sitting on the couch, and felt a small wave like feeling. From Canada on vacation. Crazy!

I live in Burbank and definitely felt it - it was pretty mild. I was in bed reading an it was kind of like those old magic fingers beds they used to have in motels.

Felt it really good in Long Beach, about 25 miles from the center. However it didn't bother the cat enough for him to move from the couch.
