The fingers said:I didn't feel it. In the last 3 years I've only felt 2 minor ones despite there being lots of them on the news. I must be sort of desensitized to them, having lived here all of my life. :|
e-beach said:OK....so did anybody feel that one?....4.7 this time. The epicenter is where Mulholland Drive and the 405 freeway cross.
for those who arn't local around here:
405 is a heavily-traveled thoroughfare by both commuters and by freight haulers along its entire length and is the busiest and most congested freeway in the United States.
A magnitude 5.1 earthquake was reported Friday evening one mile from La Habra, California, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 9:09 p.m. Pacific time at a depth of 0.6 miles.
Updated at 9:48 p.m.
So far, there have been reports of only moderate damage from the quake. Residents in La Habra, near the epicenter, have sent out pictures on social media showing broken vases, topped furniture and items scattered around their homes. No structural damage has been reported so far. Disneyland has closed some rides, according to guests. Some said they were stuck on rides. The Los Angeles Fire Department said there have been no reports of significant damage in Los Angeles. Power was out in some neighborhoods near the epicenter. There are no reported injures.
The Los Angeles area is threaded with many buried faults, some of which have never been mapped. A new study suggests that a magnitude 5.0 or greater earthquake on at least one of these faults is virtually a sure thing in the next few years.
