The shaking went on for a very long time for an earthquake. The shaking was mild at our house and we wondered if it was a very big earthquake far away, or a moderate one closer to home. The SCEC map shows we live about 50 km from the epicenter.
earthquake was widely felt. Notice that ground motion does not go down monotonically with distance. Factors like bedrock versus alluvial soils also determine how much shaking an area experiences.
