Aftershocks continue in Mexico where a 7.2 struck Sunday. A moderate 5.5 magnitude earthquake struck at 9:44 a.m. LAist photographer Tom Andrews said he felt it in Laguna Beach and the force was enough to make a chandelier swing. Hundreds of aftershocks have struck the region since Sunday. Here in Studio City, we didn't feel the 5.5. Did you?
