A 4.1-magnitude earthquake was reported by the USGS outside of Rowland Heights a little after 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Several aftershocks have steadily been reported after Friday night's 5.1-magnitude earthquake in La Habra. The multiple earthquakes have made many residents nervous.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A magnitude-4.1 aftershock has rattled parts of Southern California where a moderate quake occurred the day before. The U.S. Geological Survey says the aftershock struck shortly after 2:30 p.m. Saturday near Rowland Heights. A magnitude-5.1 earthquake centered 25 miles south of Los Angeles hit Friday night, cracking foundations and causing evacuations.
The magnitude-5.1 earthquake centered just east of La Habra on Friday night was felt throughout the region, however the damage it caused was primarily isolated to a pocket of northern Orange County, where 26 homes were red-tagged, officials said. Dozens of aftershocks continued to rumble through the night, including one measured at magnitude 3.6 at 9:30 p.m.
