Though the USGS reports this morning's mini quake as 3.9-magnitude, OC folks have reported feeling more than a little shake. The earthquake, located about one mile from San Juan Capistrano, was recorded just after 10:30 a.m. Monday morning.

 

 

The earth moved under Southern California from Northeast LA to Huntington Beach to the headquarters of the OC Register and points between. The tectonic shakedown was reportedly felt as north as Glendale.
