Earthquake shakes Southern California


ASSOCIATED PRESS

2:04 p.m. June 16, 2005

LOS ANGELES – An earthquake shook a wide area of Southern California Thursday but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
The 1:53 p.m. quake had a preliminary magnitude of 5.3 and was centered near the San Andreas Fault nine miles east of Redlands in San Bernardino County east of Los Angeles, according to the automated seismic network operated by the U.S. Geological Survey, California Institute of Technology and other institutions.

It was the third significant quake to affect California since Sunday when a magnitude-5.2 quake shook the Anza area of Riverside County. A 7.0 quake struck Tuesday night 90 miles off Northern California.

The latest quake was felt from San Diego to Los Angeles and in counties to the east.

The Los Angeles Fire Department received no immediate reports of any significant damage, said spokesman Brian Humphrey.

That 7.0 was followed by a tsunami warning all the way up here on Van.Isle. Unfortunately some telephone wires around Neah Bay were down, so we didn't hear about it until the next day. Great system. There's emergency preparedness for you. Our place is about 10 feet above sea level.

Glad everyone was ok! What are you doing to help yourself be better prepared for a tsunami now that you know the emergency system isn't what it should be?

Just curious, because we have relatives living on Mercer Island, WA.

I guess this was a wakeup call to us. It is like a test run that failed. The TV is suggesting a 3 day supply of emergency provisions. But as the days drift into forgetfulness, the shock returns to normal. Some people were out on the beaches, lawn chairs and beer, waiting for the wave. Doesn't seem to matter, there's always a few clowns out there.

Bucky, At the turn of the first millenium, since 1 day is a 1000 years to gOD, The church hierarchy convinced the people to sell all their property and assets and prepare for the second coming and armageddon. Day after, people had no place to call home. Nice. Chicken littles!
