You haven't missed much, while people who come out here and experience their first might freak over a weak one. Locals will start insisting the ground shook for "2 minutes" while the official report will be 17 seconds and the like.

"Largest earthquake in several years" per LA Times...

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-m ... story.html
The L.A. area feels an earthquake of this magnitude on average about once a year, Vidale said.
There is a 1-in-20 chance that Thursday's quake will lead to a larger one in the next few weeks, he said. But, more than likely, smaller aftershocks that may not even be felt will follow, he said.
( John Vidale, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center at USC.)
