According to USGS reports, the earthquake could be felt 200 miles away near Palm Desert, California. In Del Mar, California, a USA TODAY journalist observed a small amount of shaking.

A 6.0 earthquake is considered moderate by the USGS and likely to cause property damage. A 7.0 earthquake, on the other hand, is considered strong, deadly, and is expected to cause billions of dollars in damage.
