FROM LOS ANGELES TIMES: 

A magnitude 5.1 earthquake was reported Friday evening one mile from La Habra, California, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 9:09 p.m. Pacific time at a depth of 0.6 miles.

Pasadena officials reported no damage so far. Closer to the epicenter, there have been reports of fallen items in homes and broken glass. Still no immediate reports of injuries.

Updated at 10:12 p.m.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said LAPD and LAFD checks have found no damage so far in Los Angeles. He said the quake is a reminder to be prepared.

Updated at 10:08 p.m.

There have been about 20 aftershocks from the 5.1 quake as well as several foreshocks.

Brea police said a rock slide took place in Carbon Canyon and that Carbon Canyon Road in closed.

Updated at 9:56 p.m.:

Preliminary data suggests Friday night’s earthquake occurred on the Puente Hills thrust fault, which stretches from the San Gabriel Valley to downtown Los Angeles and caused the 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake. 

Friday night’s 5.1 earthquake hit only about 2 to 3 miles underneath the surface, which means the shaking is very concentrated in a small area, officials said.

Updated at 9:48 p.m.

So far, there have been reports of only moderate damage from the quake. Residents in La Habra, near the epicenter, have sent out pictures on social media showing broken vases, topped furniture and items scattered around their homes. No structural damage has been reported so far. Disneyland has closed some rides, according to guests. Some said they were stuck on rides. The Los Angeles Fire Department said there have been no reports of significant damage in Los Angeles. Power was out in some neighborhoods near the epicenter. There are no reported injures.

Updated at 9:44 p.m.

The 5.1 magnitude earthquake that rattled Southern California Friday night raises the possibility that a larger quake is on the way, seismologists said. (It was originally listed as 5.3 magnitude).

The swarm of earthquakes began at 8:03 p.m., when a 3.6 earthquake hit. That ended up being a foreshock of the largest earthquake to hit, a magnitude 5.1 at 9:09 p.m. At least two more aftershocks hit in the 3 range, a 3.4 at 9:11 p.m. and a 3.6 at 9:30 p.m.

From KTLA….

5.1-magnitude earthquake struck near La Habra at 9:09 p.m. Friday, according to the United States Geological Survey. The magnitude was downgraded after preliminarily being reported as 5.3.

The epicenter of the temblor, which occurred at a depth of 1.2 miles, was located one mile east of La Habra, three miles southwest of Rowland Heights and four miles north of Fullerton, the USGS said.

“It was felt pretty much throughout the populated part of Southern California,” said Caltech seismologist Dr. Kate Hutton, adding that the epicenter was not “on an obvious fault.”

La Habra City Councilman James Gomez said the quake lasted “20 to 30 seconds” and “shook rather violently.”

Work crews were responding to reports of a power outage in an area of the city, Gomez said. Elsewhere in the La Habra, Sky5 video showed firefighters responding to a flooded street in after a water main ruptured.

The quake was preceded at 8:03 p.m. by a 3.6-magnitude foreshock in the same area, according to the Geological Survey.

“Here in La Habra it was a fast, hard, shallow jolt,” Cyndi Turner said on Facebook, referring to the earlier tremor.

Others on social media reported feeling both quakes in downtown Los Angeles, West Covina, Montclair, La Mirada and Whittier.

Friday’s tremors occurred less than two weeks after a 4.4-magnitude earthquake struck near Beverly Hills on March 17.
