According the USGS, at 9:30 and 43 seconds this Saturday morning, the Inland Empire got a minor 3.7 magnitude morning jolt with their coffee.

Preliminary reports center the quake in the mountains about 7 miles WSW of Idyllwild with Palm Springs folk reporting the a strong shake about 19 miles to the east.

Nearby residents of Hemet, Menifee, Temecula, Riverside, and Murietta chimed on the USGS website to report their feelings. Reports were also received from San Diego and from one REALLY sensitive person 150 miles away in North Hollywood.
