Two Violent Earthquakes hit coast of Baja and Rancho Palos Verdes California

quake2California – Two violent earthquakes hit the southern cost of California this Friday morning at approximately 2:30 a.m. The first to hit was a 6.4 magnitude quake 262km SSW of Avalon, California the second quake was a 6.1 magnitude reading with an epicenter 142km SW of Avalon, California.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the Mag: 6.4 – Depth: 10 km – off the west coast Of Baja California – and the 6.1 magnitude earthquake. 175 km from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, United States.

Witnesses in Anaheim say they felt a slow smooth whirlpool rolling shake. Another witness in Ocean Beach, San Diego, was quoted as saying “Been through many, this was the longest feeling one, my 2nd story 100 year old apt, the floor swayed and twisted.

In Hillcrest they’re saying they felt a strong seemingly long quake.

Inglewood says “It was crazy it didn’t wake me up but the dog did.

Pico Rivera, say they felt a subtle sway and shake. Lamp and windows shook.

Coronado witnesses say nothing fell off walls but certainly the house shook.

here in San Diego, just felt my couch shaking from that quake a little while ago… very eerie!

Folks in La Jolla say they felt a gentle shake.

Spring Valley witness says it woke her up.

An Anaheim witness told us she was awake for odd reason then started feeling the earthquake. She says it frightened. In her words: “I hope the world doesn’t really end.

There were many many more disturbed by these two quakes.

Earthquake shaking in the eastern United States can travel much farther and cause damage over larger areas than previously thought, but these quakes were south west of that part of the U.S.

U.S. Geological Survey scientists found that last year’s magnitude 5.8 earthquake in Virginia triggered landslides at distances four times farther—and over an area 20 times larger—than previous research has shown.

There are no reports of damage or lost of life.

While we were yet compiling this report another 5.1 quake hit the southern coast of California.

The Guardian Express will update you as soon as we have more information.

    Both of these are well off the coast of California and hardly newsworthy.

    How about a little copy proofing, editor? The misspellings here are distracting to say the least.
