Los Angeles Rocked (Gently) by 3.2 Earthquake

Locals shaken awake by 'nasty' tremor, raising fears of bigger quake

Los Angeles has been rocked by a magnitude 3.2 earthquake.

The tremor occurred at 1.15am local time (9.45am GMT) at a depth of 7.5 miles (12km), according to the US Geological Survey. Its epicentre was in the West Athens area in the south of the city.

Locals reported feeling the ground shake, with some tweeting that they were woken up by the quake.

"That felt nasty," wrote one. "Especially because it was near my area."

Another said: "I jumped out of bed and woke everyone up just in case."

"Felt quite a strong shake in downtown LA," tweeted another.

Minor tremors are a regular reminder of the likelihood of another strong earthquake in Los Angeles, which was devastated by a deadly magnitude 6.7 earthquake in January 1994

TRUST ME, 3.2 is far removed from being rocked. ( unless maybe you moved there from a location that doesn't normally get earthquakes. Since the last previous large earthquake ). That's barely enough to get your attention during normal activities. Having a hard time keeping on your feet ,that's being rocked. :shock:

They always warned that first minute after a earthquake was the most dangerous. The danger being that it was the initial quake before a great quake. After the first minute the chances decrease rapidly.
As of now I bet you got me wrong

John Titor was right

When they said that, I figured it was "rocked" like you're rocking your baby to sleep. Because that's about all it would do.
