Earthquake Rattles Southern California

There are frayed nerves in Southern California following a moderate earthquake that rattled San Diego and gently rolled Los Angeles.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was centered about 85 miles east of San Diego and struck at 9:26 p.m. Pacific. It had a 5.7 magnitude. And there have been lots of aftershocks.

Emergency officials in San Diego County say calls to all cities in the county found no reports of significant damage. A county supervisor says the quake "thumped really hard."

The quake caused a momentary pause at the Toronto Blue Jays-San Diego Padres game in San Diego. Fans cheered when the public address announcer asked them to remain calm.

In the Los Angeles area, the quake was felt as a gentle rolling motion.

According to online citizen reports compiled by the USGS, more than 1,000 people reported feeling the shaking.

    US Citizen: It was hardly earth-shattering enough to impress much of anyone trying to add it to the list of scriptural curses. I have a flatscreen monitor setting on a wire shelf & was here at the computer... and that's probably the only reason I noticed it other than a momentary shift and dizziness. If I'd been in San Diego instead of the Inland Empire, I suppose I might have been a tad more concerned. Kimo: LOL I think we'll survive.

    Jesus’ disciples asked him in Matthew chapter 24: “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,a’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. GET READY FOR THE KING IS COMING!!!
