Now, hasn't it just been too quiet in Southern California? Were you not just asking about when the next earthquake was going to hit? We have our answer. A 4.7 (originally estimated by sensors as 5.0) struck at 8:39 p.m., 10 miles SSW of Downtown L.A. in Lennox, a suburb just feet from Inglewood. We are getting reports that people have felt the quake from Santa Monica to Glendale. How was your Sunday evening shake? UPDATE: It was followed by two microquakes--3.1 and 1.6--at 8:45 p.m. and 9:46 p.m., respectively. Also, a 2.5 struck at 8:44 p.m. in El Segundo. The Los Angeles Fire Department reported no immediate damage or injuries, but recommended you review disaster preparedness info. UPDATE 2: The LA Times has a photo of broken glass at a Starbucks--one person was reportedly sent to the hospital.
