Tonight March 28, 2014 in La Habra, Ca there were several earthquakes that shook the town. I myself live in La Verne which is about sixteen miles away and we felt it here, believe me, it was really strong. The first quake hit at about 9:09 p.m Pacific time according to the U.S. Geological Survey and reported by the L.A. Times and is said to have occurred on the fault in Puente Hills. This fault runs from the San Gabriel Valley all the way to downtown Los Angeles, the same fault that was responsible for the 1987 Whittier Narrow earthquake.
The quake measured 5.1 and was only 2 to 3 miles below the surface. Sources say that the swarm of earthquakes began at 8:03 p.m. and the first measured 3.6, this is said to be a fore-shock. There were at least two aftershocks that measured around 3.0 to 3.4 happening at 9:11 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Now to tell you my story and what we experienced. We now consider it pretty funny and are having a lot of laughs. Now most of us know the story of Noah and the Ark. There is a new film called Noah and it opened here in La Verne tonight. My husband and I always sit at the top row the highest view in the theater. We were watching the movie and were totally engrossed. About two hours into it during the part where the 40 days and 40 nights of rain had just stopped, the earth was flooded and all was dead except for Noah and his family and all the animal life on board, two by two.
This is a great moment in Bible history, the rain stopped the flood ceased, only tonight the earth shook! Wow, and you thought 3D was an experience. I will tell you that my husband has claw marks from me grabbing his arm as I perched in my seat ready to run. We remained in our seats and continued to watch the movie while others left until the usher came in and asked us all to leave the theater promising everyone a free movie pass for another day. So off we went heading home to check on the animals and to reach our children to make sure all was well and it was.
This had to be the most exciting night at the movies I have ever experienced in my life!
