"I felt it" reports:
Phelan Ca, Malpaso RD. (4.8 km NE from epicenter) [Map] / MMI V (Moderate shaking): Just a moderate jolt, felt like it came from the South, which would place it on the San Andreas. A little rumbling afterward. I was awake sitting at my computer when it hit.
South Phelan, California / MMI IV (Light shaking): House made shaking noise and we felt shaking/dizzy
Santa Clarita / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Slight but obvious shake. Likely felt because I was leaning against a wall while seated in bed. Woke the dog, lol, didn't wake anyone else
