    Southern California Hit by Biggest Earthquake in Years

    Residents of communities as far away as Las Vegas and northern Mexico felt the rattle of yesterday’s magnitude 6.4 temblor, centered some 125 miles northeast of Los Angeles. Observers say it was the largest rooted in Southern California in two decades, and the most intense in nearly five years. But despite the magnitude and scale of the earthquake, no deaths, serious injuries or major damage to infrastructure has been reported. “It just kept feeling like you were in a boat,” one eyewitness said.

    Is more movement coming? Seismologists have warned locals to expect more aftershocks, or even another significant quake.
