Posted on 07/29/2008 11:43:21 AM PDT by ZGuy
An earthquake is now rocking the Southern California area. (I'm near Dodger Stadium)
As I post this, the USGS has not yet determined the epicenter so click on the link above for the exact location and magnitude from the USGS.
Here are the maps for California and Los Angeles:
Here's the historical review of the last seven days:
Felt in San Diego too. Pretty long for a quake.
Man that was a BIG ONE....Rocked and Rolled fro a LONG Time.....
Pretty good jolt in Corona
Yikes, I heard it before it hit. It seemed pretty major. To shook up to read the maps. Where was that centered?
It lasted a good 30 seconds in Riverside. I was tempted to stop working for a second and dive under my desk.
That was quite a shaker alright. Felt it read good here near the coast. 2nd shock was bigger than the 1st.
Decent sideways movement in Chula Vista south of San Diego at 11:43 a.m..
Rolling motion for maybe 5 seconds. Nothing fell. With the first report near Dodger Stadium, this may be centered on the San Andreas.
Radio just broke in at 11:45 with possible center in Los Angeles County.
5.6 on the Richter scale, ( 2 mi) SW of Chino Hills, CA
The epi-center was MY CLASSROOM!! I swear! It did the shimmy for what felt like about 15 seconds! I was just holding very still, thinking, “uh... uh... please don’t collapse!” LOL! (I’m in Los Feliz, western edge, near Hollywood.)
Got a very strong rattling in the Murrietta/Temecula area too! Nothing broken though.
Strong jolt here in Long Beach. Lasted about 10 seconds. Some slow rolling motion afterwards.
Preliminary 5.6, centered near Chino.
Whoa! That was quite a ride here in Culver City!
MAP 5.8 2008/07/29 11:42:15 33.959N 117.752W 12.3 3 km ( 2 mi) SW of Chino Hills, CA
Felt it real good here in Burbank. Shook a long time (of course our building is on rollers). No damage to our building.
Let me correct that, no damage that I know of.
USGS going with a preliminary magnitude of 5.6...
Rattled pretty good up here in the mountains.
Looks like they upgraded it to 5.8.
