O.K. I just felt that one!! 1:54 P.M., Thursday the 16th. I think it was out San Bernadino way - pretty good shake in Pasadena!!

It must've been a good one, PTT, I felt it in SD. I'd check the Cal Tech & CNN sites for updates.

LOS ANGELES, June 16 (Reuters) - A moderate earthquake of magnitude 5.3 shook the Los Angeles area on Thursday afternoon at 1:53 p.m. PT (2053 GMT), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake was centered around Yucaipa, California, 79 miles (126 km) east of Los Angeles.

"My apartment rattled and I had glass fall off a very heavy armoire," Riverside, California resident Raven Lopez Workman told a local television station. "My dogs went insane."

Buildings in downtown Los Angeles swayed during the quake, but there were no visible signs of damage, witnesses said.

The temblor was the third significant seismic event to occur in California this week, coming two days after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake off the coast of northern California that briefly triggered tsunami warnings and four days after a 5.2 quake shook the desert near Palm Springs. in southern California.

A 5.3 magnitude earthquake can cause considerable damage.

I swear I felt one in NorCal the other morning, but the closest one was only a 2.1 in Daly City, we wouldn't have felt that in the East Bay.

hang on kiddies

Wow! I'm out here in The 909 at work (Inland Empire) and we felt it pretty good! I was just heading back to the office after lunch and starting up my car when all of a sudden my car starts bouncing up and down and rocking from side to side! I thought something was wrong with my car until I realized what had happened! I still wasn't sure until I turned on the radio. My staff back at the office said we had visitors from out of state waiting in the lobby when the earthquake hit. They just sat there wide-eyed as if they had just seen the ghost of Trader Vic! Luckily, no damage here. We are about 30 miles west of the epicenter. I'm gonna need a few mai tais after that one to calm my nerves!!! Hopefully, I still have mugs to drink from!

Greetings from Earthquake Central.

Luckily I was not home when it happened, but as soon as I heard where the epicenter was, I told my boss I was leaving and sped home. I had visions of serious tiki mug catastrophy in my mind. When I got off the freeway I kept seeing fire trucks and emergency vehicles passing by.

Fortunately, the only things out of place were a couple of plastic mugs that fell off a shelf. It also knocked over a tube of Chapstick in my bathroom.

I'm inclined to hope it's not true, but I have not been presented with facts and statistics establishing otherwise...

There are many parts of the world as I know it that I wouldn't mind if they ended.

This one shook pretty good. I'm on the third floor of a medical building in Beverly Hills, and all the equipment was swaying and rattling. This was a good reminder that I need to get out the "earthquake putty" for all the breakable stuff at home.

I was flying into LA from Phoenix and a guy next to me who had spent a week there said to me, You know how everyone says that California will slide into the sea during a big earthquake? Well that cannot happen, because Arizona sucks!
