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.

Yeah I felt that.

Stay tuned, this seems like it’s not done. Maybe.

I've walked past that many times.

I grew up in Whittier/Santa Fe Springs, Now in Memphis, TN for a lot of years. My mother was so upset when we moved to tornado country from So.Ca.

I have a terminal lung disease, IPF. Sorry about the earth wake, but all the chatter gave me a wonderful trip down memory lane. Married in SFS. My children born at Whitter Presbyterian, etc. Sorry for the side trip.

My family lost everything in the Whittier Narrows.

We were living in Lakewood/Long Beach for the Whittier Narrows quake. Thought it was the Big One due to the liquefaction. Stay safe, guys!
