LA HABRA (CBSLA.com) — A 5.1-magnitude earthquake struck La Habra Friday night more than an hour after a smaller quake shook the area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The temblor, which had a depth of 4.6 miles, hit at 9:09 p.m.
The epicenter was 1 mile east of La Habra, 1 mile west-northwest of Brea, 3 miles south-southwest of Rowland Heights and 4 miles north of Fullerton.
Initially reported to be a magnitude-5.3, the quake was felt in Kern, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, San Diego and Los Angeles counties. There were no reports of any injuries.
About 40 aftershocks hit the Southland, including a 3.4-magnitude quake at 9:11 p.m. and a magnitude-3.6 at 9:30 p.m.
For Californians living in quake-prone regions, this is a yawner. I remember that in the hour immediately after the Loma Prieta quake, we had two aftershocks over 5.0. In comparison, they were barely noticeable.
