When did they start NAMING earthquakes? Down in San Diego, Hugh Hewitt must feel quite honored to have the first one named after him... ;-)

Hollywood Park area of Inglewood.

Felt it pretty intense here in the L.A. Harbor area. Strongest I’ve felt since Northridge — I was in Van Nuys for that one.

That is probably the strongest one I’ve felt since Whittier, I think.

And it was a whole lot closer!
