I was sitting at my desk at home on the Westside and I felt everything start to shift back and forth. It wasn't forceful but enough to have the water in my glass slosh around a bit. This just happened, around 1:38 p.m. today. Did anyone else feel it?

I was in my office in Goleta and my chair rocked back and forth. I knew it was a quake that was either smallish and close or large and faraway. I remember watching the A's and Giants in the world series way back when on TV here. I heard the commotion from the announcer's booth then the feed from the game stopped. A couple minutes later my chair rocked back and forth just like it did today.

I did not feel anything but I fell on the way to the store around that time and I could not figure out how I fell now I think it was the Quake it was around the same time. I hoped up before anyone could call 911 but I did get banged up a bit oh well..

Or 16 miles southwest of Lompoc and at an ocean depth of 6 miles----for those of us who aren't metric.
