Beverly Hills Residents Pissed at Nerve of Earthquake to Strike in Their Neighborhood
A 3.2 earthquake mildly disturbed residents of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood this morning, prompting calls to local police because people in Beverly Hills aren't supposed to fall victim to pesky things like nature.
The quake struck at about 3:30 a.m., and the AP reports that the complaints began flooding in soon thereafter:
Beverly Hills police watch commander Sgt. Michael Publicker said his station has been getting numerous calls from anxious citizens. He said, "Every alarm in the city is going off."
Residents of nearby areas were seemingly less peeved:
An officer at the nearby West Los Angeles police precinct said there had been no calls about the quake.
The quake's epicenter was one mile from West Hollywood, reports the LA Times.
