San Mateo, CA / Weak shaking (MMI III) / complex rolling (tilting in multiple directions) : I was sitting down in my garage and randomly felt dizzy, off balance. Looked up to see my bathroom door moving 1-2 inches in an open and close motion. It was a rolling motion from east to west. Lights were swinging as well.I would say it lasted about 40 s
