Seems like a pretty good one felt here in South Bay
Nothing felt here.
felt like a 5.1 in Downtown LA
Good strong jolt and some “rock and roll” here outside of Los Angeles.
You got this thread up really quickly!!
Haven’t heard the news yet, my dogs are going crazy. Hope that wasn’t a warm up for something much stronger....
And, if it does hit, please God, let me be home with my family and animals and not caught out on the road.
And, it’s time to check the earthquake supplies...water...check...dog food...check...beer to keep DH calm....check...
4.7 centered in Westwood. Felt it in La Palma
9km NNW of Westwood, California
2014-03-17 13:25:36 UTC8.5 km deep
As Bob Hope said once about California Earthquakes:
“It’s the San Gabriel Mountains doing the funky chicken!!”
Felt it hard here in Beverly Hills..thanks for scaring the holy hell outta me quake
Maybe this is another ‘adjustment’ related to that offshore event a week or two ago, North near Eureka????
My cousin lives in Brentwood, probably felt it bad over there
Visiting my sister here in Marina del Rey. Felt quite sharply here. Initial jolt, then sharper second jolt.
Time Magnitude Location
8 minutes ago 4.7 Greater Los Angeles area, California
Felt stronger than that to me.
4.7 under the Santa Monica Mtns near Encico
La Crescenta checking in - pretty good shake but no damage
Twitter reaction ranges from “Holy crap! That was the longest, most disturbing #earthquake I’ve ever felt in L.A. I got seasick. Any idea on the magnitude?” to “4.7, we call that a foot massage”.
Does Daryl Hannah have a tendency to freak out during quakes?
What happens when S.F. gets the next BIG ONE? You know they will expect those millionaires to be mailed out.
I teach school— and have a feeling classrooms will be empty today.
Whenever there is an earthquake, no matter how small, parents line up at the gate to get their kids, sometimes keeping them out for days at a time.
I’m off to work, hope that’s the last of it for a while. Got everyone’s attention and was a good reminder that we sit on one of the most dangerous earthquake faults in the world here in Los Angeles.
Waiting for LAT/NYT to blame fracking...
Who cares, LOL?
I don’t know anyone else but I admit I am terrified during quakes — all those scare stories in the media about the “big one” and all.
Time to review earthquake procedures — trust me, that one got my attention, I felt like I was right on top of it — and looking at the coordinates, I probably WAS — it was centered underneath my Lazy Boy recliner!!
Updated on the Southern California Earthquake Center as a 4.4, centered very close to the Getty Museum in the Sepulveda pass.
My house here in the San Fernando Valley “rattled” noisily for about 5 seconds. Not a big deal. It was not one of those deep rolling ones. It was a shallow but noisy one. No damage that I can see, may have some cracks in stucco (need to go look outside later)...
This was a little shaker. Big deal.
Must be at least a 4.2 then...
Yeah, I’m in Northridge.. :(
In a hotel in Van Nuys. Definitely felt it.
Record heat yesterday. Much cooler today. EQ A familiar pattern.
“...It made the weights on my cuo cuo clock swing.”
For some reason I see Governor Cuomo sticking his head out of cuckoo clock and asking for more money every hour on the hour.
Oh good! get out the popcorn Send all the rat representative congress people and thier rat nieghboring state reps home to enjoy this.
Not a chance. That was at the other end of the state. Different faults systems and about 500 miles
Felt it in Rancho Palos Verdes. The cat felt it too and ran under the table.
The USGS map has it at 4.4
@911LAPD Please do not call 911 to report the #earthquake. We are well aware of it. Lines need to be kept open for emergencies
A caller to Laura Ingraham was mid-sentence and interrupted himself saying he was in California and they were having an earthquake and he had to get off. Laura thought maybe they’d been punked....apparently not!
Just another “Shake and Bake”! I was laying in bed and it started shaking. Can’t wait for the big one!
And full moon!
Here in Torrance, I didn’t notice it, but my daughter and cat did. Barely. Earthquakes have been on my mind a lot lately. I guess it had been awhile since we had a little larger one.
I was in the shower...what did I miss?
It was hugh!
It was just loud here in the W. San Fernando Valley. But, it’s a good reminder to make sure that you’re stocked up on the essentials in case of “The Big One”.
I take it you were neither shaken nor stirred.
Two quakes - another one just popped up on the map:
2.7 8km NW of Westwood, California 2014-03-17 10:23:39 UTC-04:00 7.1 km
4.4 9km NNW of Westwood, California 2014-03-17 09:25:36 UTC-04:00 8.5 km
Likely aftershock .....
Yeah, woke us up. My cat is gonna need therapy.
I used to live in South Bay!
