Ontario at home / MMI IV (Light shaking): We just had what seems to be an earthquake. But the sound was that of someone drilling deep into the earth with a loud screeech sound after drilling. Some shaking. Some things started moving that we're hanging up. It was not like a normal earthquake boom.
Rancho Cucamonga California / not felt: I did not feel shaking I felt a strong jerk to one side lasted no more than two or three seconds. It did not shake it was a jerk to the side
Perris / MMI II (Very weak shaking)
Hemet (United States) (29 km NW from epicenter)(no details): Slight rattling. Enough to startle me. Lasted ten to fifteen seconds. (via EMSC)
