It was 5.8 and centered in Chino Hills. My office is about 2 miles from the epicenter. There doesn't seem to be too much damage here and everyone is back to work.

On flightaware, looks like planes are taking off and landing. So I would assume everything is OK there.

Here is a link to google maps of the USGS determined location. Far from airports so I doubt it'll have any significant impact.

WOW!!!! That was bananas!!! iMacs can dance!!! ...in earthquakes.

However, should not affect an airports in San Diego County anyhow. It was a rolling (not shaking) earthquake down here.

Actually ONT is quite nearby the epicenter (5 miles?). I'm sure they felt it big time.

I live roughly halfway between LAX (SE of ) and HHR (NW of) , and can visually observe flight ops from both. Operations are unaffected at these fields.

Just had BUR on CNN. Looks to be running smooth. CNN also said the ground radar at LAX is down. Not sure if it was directly affected by the earthquake. Anyone know any further info?

Last Seattle earthquake, a semi collapse of the control tower (personnel got out safely), and runway damage at Boeing Field. I imagine there is a thread covering it, not a member at the time.

5.8? Yawn...

I was in the shower. Kind of weird. I could tell it was a largish quake far from me (40 miles) but I did wonder if it kept rolling and the room fell around me and jammed the door, how I'd react to needing to be rescued from a shower, wet and naked.  Sad

CALTECH is now revising it to 5.4 (according to Cal Tech guy live on the phone right now on TV). Due to the kind of quake, it seemed higher at first so instruments measured it as 5.8. But 5.4s can kill people in some regions of the world, depending on the type of soil and construction around.

UPDATE: An official from LA's airport authority reported no damages to LAX (other than a water heater breaking in T7- United's terminal, which caused minor flooding), ONT is also reporting no damage.

A 5.4 is about 50-100 times less powerful than the Northridge quake of '94, so it's unlikely there is any damage to roads, major buildings, etc., let alone runways. The SAN report is likely false. Far to far away for such a result...

Yep. Im at the my office in Anaheim not too far away. Nothing really much to report, the building just shook quite a bit. I barely looked up from my computer.

Yeah, after my fun with the Northridge quake, this wasnt s**t.

LAX wont be affected hardly at all.
