Earthquake estimated at 5.8 strikes Southern California

Postby StarsNPinstripes » Tue Jul 29, 2008 3:23 pm

A strong earthquake shook Southern California on Tuesday, causing buildings to sway and triggering some precautionary evacuations. No immediate damage was reported.

The jolt was felt from Los Angeles to San Diego, and slightly in Las Vegas.

Preliminary information from the U.S. Geological Survey estimated the quake at magnitude 5.8, centered 29 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles near Chino Hills in San Bernardino County. Ten aftershocks occurred in the next dozen minutes, including three estimated at 3.8.

Hope everyone out there is OK.

Eyewitness Cafe News has it covered with it's man on the scene Artful Dodger and roving reporter Yoda.

Early reports indicate that Baseball Cafe members are all fine (football cafe members are dandy) and the quake has failed to wake up Andruw Jones.

Next update at the top of the hour.
