|THE SOFA SHOOK and the bookshelf rattled for 2 to 3 seconds here at home in Atwater Village, about 7:50 p.m.|
Meanwhile, on the other end of the phone, Mrs. Newbie felt some shaking in her car. She was at a stoplight in Sherman Oaks.
Quick, gentle, couldn't have been more than a 2 or 3. Anyone else feel it?
UPDATE #1: Well. It was a 5.0 near San Bernardino, about 50 miles east of Atwater Village and the Los Angeles city limits, at 7:49:46 PM. The USGS gives my shake report an estimated intensity of II.
