There was an earthquake today centered near Chino Hills, about 40 miles from the Seal Beach area.  It was measured to be 5.4.  The quake was felt over a large area of the southland – Las Vegas and San Diego included.

Everyone that I spoke with said they felt the initial shock followed by rolling for another 15 to 20 seconds.  Everyone seemed to be shaken (no pun intended) but doing well.

However, there are some reports of damage and precautionary closures.  A number of grocery stores and at least one WalMart were closed while the aisles were cleared of items falling from shelves.  There was an electrical fire at the theater at Main Place Mall in Orange.  We heard there was minor structural damage at the fire station in Seal Beach.

Let us know what you hear.
