In LA right now...rockin the house.
UPDATE: Alles in Ordnung. For now.
5.6 5.8; felt from San Diego to San Francisco Santa Barbara. LA Times server must have caught something heavy. It's down.
Epicenter: 29 miles east of LA...Chino Hills.
UPDATE:LAT back up.
UPDATE: Breitbart (AP):
Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said there were no immediate reports of damage or injury in Los Angeles. San Bernardino County fire dispatch also had no immediate reports of damage.
The quake struck at 11:42 a.m. PDT. Buildings swayed in downtown Los Angeles for several seconds.
Workers quickly evacuated some office buildings.
"It was dramatic. The whole building moved and it lasted for a while," said Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore, who was in the sheriff's suburban Monterey Park headquarters east of Los Angeles.
UPDATE: My great-aunt, a Californian through and through: "Enough with the earthquake coverage already!"
UPDATE: They're still talking about it on FNC. Overheard passing by the TV: "...as soon as we get some video of those [presumably broken] ceiling tiles..." ZZZZ
East Coasters, relax. We're used to this.
UPDATE: Gabriel Malor was taking his bar exam in the
LA Ontario Convention Center where the ceiling tiles in question fell and that they're heavy enough to hurt someone. My bad. I'm glad that no future lawyers were hurt.
