L.A. gets a strong shake

A magnitude 5.1 earthquake was reported last Friday evening one mile from La Habra or 28 miles (45 km) from Downtown L.A., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 9:09 p.m. Pacific time at a depth of 0.6 miles (1 km), and that is pretty shallow, hence the problems it caused were out of proportion to what you would normally expect from an earthquake of that size.
