Earthquake!

Just felt an earthquake out here in the Park La Brea/Miracle Mile area. It felt like a gentle rolling action… so much so that I thought I was getting woozy.

There should be some information here, here and here shortly.

UPDATE: More information on this specific earthquake here:

A moderate earthquake occurred at 1:53:25 PM (PDT) on Thursday, June 16, 2005.
The magnitude 5.3 event occurred 5 km (3 miles) NE of Yucaipa, CA.
The hypocentral depth is 12 km ( 8 miles).

(Dammit, Cindy, Joz, and Cybele, you beat me to it!)

  1. It must be centered east of LA because here in Riverside it was more than a gentle rolling action. My house shook pretty good for at least 5 seconds. But everything is ok.

  2. I think it’s so cute that you guys posted all at once!

    I felt it in North Hollywood, but I’m still kinda new to this earthquake thing, so I thought it might just be related to one of the many construction sites near my house.
