Absolutely felt it and it woke my butt up! Growing up in Southern California I immediately knew it was an earthquake.

It was a "shocker" rather than a roller. Around 3 good jolts and did not feel any aftershocks.

Think subduction fault.

''The present shape and form of Baja California was developed in the last 5-10 million years as the continent finally yielded to the stretching and opened successive areas of the Gulf, finally opening the mouth about 5 million years ago. The splitting of the continent tilted the peninsula westward forming the asymmetric fault blocks of the main ranges of the Sierra Juarez, Sierra San Pedro Martir, Sierra la Giganta and uplifting other ranges such as the Sierra la Asamblea and Sierra la Victoria. Coastal California and Baja California will eventually become an Island.''

Thought I felt that one as well but nowhere near the intensity as the one the other morning. I just felt a little bump at my place and wasn't even sure it was an earthquake but assumed it was.

FYI, just starting to rain a little at 3:00 Loreto time. Barely wetting the dirt streets.
