Earthquake just hit Orange County

9:11 pm. About 3 minutes ago, an earthquake rolled through Orange County. In Huntington Beach, where I live, it lasted about 45 seconds.

My guess is that it was not in O.C. because of the rolling.

My dogs were acting weird when I took them for a walk 5 min. earlier. But I didn’t know why.

Update: 9:18 pm. From the L.A. Times:

A shallow magnitude 5.3 earthquake was reported Friday evening one mile from La Habra, California, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 9:09 p.m. Pacific time at a depth of 0.6 miles.

According to the USGS, the epicenter was one mile from Brea, California.

So, it actually was in Orange County, but in the very Northern part of it.,0,5399191.story#ixzz2xK29HeCx
