Earthquake in California La Habra they say
USGS ^ | March 28, 2014 | USGS

Posted on 03/28/2014 9:15:40 PM PDT by gunsequalfreedom

We felt that one. House moving side to side. I'm sure someone will have more detail. USGS reports 5.4 near La Habra (Los Angeles area).

Yep. It gave us pretty good jolt in Downey. We didn’t feel the first one (3.6 @ depth of 6.9km), but it was impossible to miss the 2nd one (5.1 @ depth of 1.9km).

Talked to some friends in Norwalk, they were at church and felt it hard. We felt it in Palm Springs, but slow and rolling. Hard enough to make the windchimes we have in the house rattle (our earthquake detector).

5.1 followed by a 3.4, 2.0, 2.1, 2.4. the 2.0, 2.1 and 2.4 are at 0km (surface) according http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/dyfi/to

In 20 years, 2 people have died in California earthquakes. That is the same number killed by OJ Simpson. So the odds dying in a Calif earthquake are the same as being killed by OJ.

Yo, peeps. I am situated in East Whittier, about 2 miles from the epicenter. At 2003 PDT we felt the 3.6 foreshock good. Then the big one 5.1 at around 2108. Stuff was jumping around in the house. Just like the Whittier Narrows 1987.

Epicenter looks like the old Beckman Instruments facility in La Habra, at Harbor and Lambert, which has been in the process of all being torn down.

Another aftershock just hit at 2131, prolly a 4 pointer.

Weren’t there 20-30 people die in the Northridge quake in 1994?

All 4 quakes centered between Imperial and Central (NS), with Harbor and Puente the East/West borders.

First was 6.9K deep, 2nd 1.9 deep, 3 and 4 0.1 K deep, just a few hundred feet.

57 died, but the stat still stands from Tim Conway’s show. Since then, in the last 20 years, only 2 have died in California quakes.

Conway also jokes that the chances of dying in a California earthquake are about the same as being struck by lightning while being eaten by a shark. LOL

Thanks for the stats. I posted so quick I did not include those.

Do I read that correct, just a few hundred feet? Good thing magnitude on that one was not higher.

Err, that was the pinpoint of the foreshock , the main 5.1 shock is listed on Caltech SCEDC was centered at 33.929N 117.922W , a bit to the northeast.

fat fingered it on account of another aftershock, ‘tis a bit to the northwest, not northeast. and another in a swarm of aftershocks hits at 2205.

Updated at 9:56 p.m.PDT:

Preliminary data suggests Friday night’s earthquake occurred on the Puente Hills thrust fault, which stretches from the San Gabriel Valley to downtown Los Angeles and caused the 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake.

Friday night’s 5.1 earthquake hit only about 2 to 3 miles underneath the surface, which means the shaking is very concentrated in a small area, officials said.

Local media reporting rides at Disneyland shut down automatically . People are leaving the park now.

Yikes that must have been scary as hell to have the ride stop and then realize you're in the middle of an EQ. Everyone OK though.

Welcome aboard Flagpole. My wife and son live in Downey; she called me about an hour or so ago and told me about it, says it shook about 20 or 30 seconds pretty good then rolled for a few more.
I was still working down there for the Whittier quake and the Northridge quake, retired 3 years ago and now I am up here on the farm in Northern Ca. Commute back down there every few months to see my Babe and do all the honey do’s she accumulates for me on the house down there.
She’s still to young to retire yet, so I get to do all the work up here then go back down and do all the work down there.
Its a great life, except for the damn 13 hour commute.

I think they can read. But they no habla ingles. Another sign I saw that puzzled ME was when we had some really high winds and all these little brown kids were holding down trailers and I thought WTF? But then I realized they were anchor babies.
