Authorities were tallying damage from a magnitude 5.1 earthquake that struck Southern California Friday evening.


Fullerton police said early Saturday that up to 50 people had been displaced because of home damage.

The quake, centered near La Habra, caused furniture to tumble, pictures to fall off walls and glass to break. Merchandise fell off store shelves, and there were reports of plate glass windows shattered.

In Brea, several people suffered minor injuries during a rockslide that overturned their car. Fullerton reported seven water main breaks. Carbon Canyon Road was closed.

Residents across Orange and Los Angeles counties and the Inland Empire reported swinging chandeliers, fireplaces dislodging from walls and lots of rattled nerves. The shake caused a rock slide in Carbon Canyon, causing a car to overturn, according to the Brea Police Department. Fullerton police received reports of water main breaks and windows shattering, but primarily had residents calling about burglar alarms being set off by the quake.

Interestingly, I was just reading CSM (yes rly 13.gif) and found this article published yesterday, before the quake of this morning.

Is California overdue for a big earthquake?

Was the recent earthquake in Los Angeles a warning of more to come? 'Earthquake Storms' author John Dvorak shares his thoughts.

I know these are small quakes but the amount of them recently is insane, imagine what a big massive earthquake could do, and the strength and amount of after shocks.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.
