USGS reports it as 11 miles deep.

Was a sharp horizontal jolt with about 1 inch of peak movement, heavily damped, mostly died after 2 cycles. Very mild rolling for roughly 30-45 seconds. I'm in Long Beach, California on an alluvial plane, in a 98 year old re-purposed church. The walls are concrete about 1 foot thick. No damage from something that small and distant, most people didn't even bother to get outside and look around. Just another attention getter in The Rock & Roll State. :wink:

Glad it wasn't bigger. My wife and I moved about 30 miles recently to get away from the worst zone of the Hayward Fault in NorCal. Stay safe.
