We Were Just Shakin’ in L.A.

9 08 2007

About ten minutes ago my building shook back and forth for a few seconds. Ah, life in California!

A light earthquake occurred at 12:58:49 AM (PDT) on Thursday, August 9, 2007.
The magnitude 4.5 event occurred 7 km (4 miles) NNW of Chatsworth, CA.
The hypocentral depth is 6 km ( 3 miles).


As these things go, it was mild but it’s always a momentary heart-stopper. Isn’t the cat supposed to sense it and warn me? Seems to me the critters always look surprised.
