Video of 5.2 Borrego Springs Earthquake at 1:04 am - June 10, 2016. We live a couple doors down from our neighbor who's web cam caught this earthquake shaking video. My wife and I both woke up right away due to the noise and shaking of the bed. We had one item fall down from the shelves. 
This is video footage from one of our neighbors, BoblandUSA http://www.boblandusa.com/. His description of the quake follows. 

 The motion felt vertical, like a Jack Hammer instead of side to side.  This is video from a camera mounted on my weather station (uses IR) and also audio from my scanner of the fire departments calling roll and getting instructions to move equipment out of the buildings.

Note about the camera mounting:
The camera mount is not ridged relative to the ground.  So it shouldn't be related/analyzed in a manner where the video motion is somehow equated to a 1:1 camera to ground motion representation.  So I do think it could be used for representing the motion characteristics of the quake but I am certain the mount would amplify perceived motion due to the flex in the Mount and Housing.
