Welcomed to Los Angeles, by an earthquake


We moved into out new apartment in Southern California on the first. And it took less than three weeks for Mother Earth to give us a welcome.

It happened at 19:50, and we were sitting on our new couch when a single sharp jolt, accompanied by a sound like a car hitting the corner of our apartment building in Gardena.

The U.S. Geological Survey earthquake site gave us the info, and we discovered the epicenter was three kilometers north of our house and registered as a 2.6 shaker.

Here’s the L.A. regional map with the quake epicenter, 11 kilometers beneath the surface, shown by the yellow star [more info on the quake here]:
