Aftershocks shake up Southern California

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

More than a hundred aftershocks rattled Southern California on Saturday including one that measured 4.1 on the Richter scale.

This, on the heels of Friday night's quake that rocked the Los Angeles area, damaging homes and businesses.

Seismologists held a press conference at Cal-tech in Pasadena late Friday night after the 5.1 magnitude earthquake hit southern California.

They said this earthquake was about ten times larger in terms of energy released than the one that struck two weeks ago, on March 17th.

The US Geological Survey says the quake struck at 9PM Pacific time on Friday in Orange County about twenty miles away from Los Angeles.

The tremors were felt as far south as San Diego and as far north as Ventura county.

No one was seriously hurt.

However, at least 83 people in the city of Fullerton have been displaced because of damage to their homes.

“It cracked the whole building and the inside our apartment. Everything has fallen over, cracks inside our building, the floor separated from the wall" one resident told us.

The quake managed to produce a rock slide that closed off a road and even forced rides at Disneyland to be shut down.

Shocks sent bottles and cans tumbling off shelves in stores.

As for residents near the earthquake's epicenter in La Habra... They're now dealing with some serious property damage like structural cracks, broken pipes and busted windows.

    A Delta Air Lines flight from La Guardia Airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, was diverted to Jacksonville because of a dispute between passengers over a reclining seat. Delta reportedly says the flight was diverted Monday night when a woman got into an argument with a passenger behind her when the woman was trying to recline her seat while the other passenger was trying to sleep on the tray table.
