CHINO HILLS, Calif. (AP) - At least 90 aftershocks have followed
yesterday's 5.4 magnitude quake in southern California.
It caused only limited damage and a few injuries. There are
fallen ceiling tiles, cracked walls and windows and warped door
frames in homes and business. State officials received scattered
reports of minor infrastructure damage, including broken water
mains and gas lines.
A fire captain in Chino Hills, near where the quake was
centered, says residents are "really fortunate this time" -- but
that it's a reminder of the quake danger in the region, and the
need to be prepared.
Los Angeles City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel says minor structural
damage is reported in the city, along with five minor injuries and
people who were stuck in elevators.
