"I felt it" reports:
Napa / MMI IX (Violent shaking): I was awake when the earthquake happened and it was the scariest sensation of my life. I could've died in the earthquake and I did feel like i was dying. 3:20 am is such a sketchy time for an earthquake to happen. Cracks in the walls, broken glass, smashed-in door, and fallen stove.
Napa, CA (8.9 km NNW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI VIII (Severe shaking): Woke from sleep to severe shaking and very loud noise. The bed was moving violently about, so I held my 3 yr. old to my chest and covered his head with my hands. I tried to move to a safer spot. Walking was too difficult, and I didn't want to fall while holding my son, so I held him close to me and crawled towards the doorway where I braced myself (realizing as I did it that I'd recently learned at the Academy of Science that doorways aren't an effective "safe spot". I decided to stay there th
San Francisco Lombard Street / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Sleeping in 3th floor of hotel, wie awake Form shaking the beds sidewards , i.e. in East-West- direction (!).

No structural damage to the house.

495 Rowland Blvd., Novato, CA (26.6 km SW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI V (Moderate shaking): The shaking was very consistent in that it did not vary in intensity. Also, I found the low rumbling noise to be striking. It too was very consistent, but it left no doubt that what was occurring was an event not man made, but what could be equated to cataclysmic if it were to be more intense in other areas. In fact, I stated to my family who happened to be awake throughout the event that we should pray for those who might be at a cataclysmic epicenter. To conclude, the runmbling noice was st
