Earthquake!

Anyone know where the epicenter was of the 5.9 earthquake today? It looks like it was around the Anza-Borrego area.

Just a bit of a roll here in Pasadena. I imagine it would be a heck of a lot stronger down by Palm Springs.

I'm sitting in Ontario and it felt like two separate earthquakes, with the first one smaller.

It caused a rockslide near the tram:

Looks like the quake was in Coyote Canyon area north of Borrego Springs. Strong shaking in Palm Springs.

I wonder how it affects people riding in the tramcar at that time. Scary I bet :shock:
