/ MMI III (Weak shaking)
Wildomar CA / MMI IV (Light shaking): We could feel and hear the walls of our home shacking. It was brief but a bit alarming, as in all other earthquakes we have experienced, were rolling feelings. This was defiantly a shaking. It sounded like the house was cracking. I did not however find any damage.

(no details): My bed just shook a little bit. Wasn't even sure that it was an earthquake. (via EMSC)
