LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A 7.1 quake rocked Southern California Friday evening. The quake struck at 8:21 p.m. and was centered in the same location as Thursday’s. 6.4. KCAL9 anchor Sara Donchey held co-anchor Juan Fernandez’ arm as she steadied herself before ducking under her desk. He, meanwhile, reported feeling nauseous about the quake that felt like it wasn’t going to stop.
CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Lesley Marin heard from her friend Laura who was attending this evening’s Dodgers/Padres game. “She said everyone started to scream.”
The 7.1 quake is now considered a foreshock to Thursday’s event. Since yesterday, there were more than 1,400 smaller quakes. The largest recorded about 5.0. Caltech on Thursday said there was a 6 percent chance there would be a quake of 6.0 or larger rocking the same area in the coming days. Variety reported that Disneyland shut down rides.
