Quake rattles San Bernardino

January 9, 2009


— A moderate earthquake rattled much of Southern California on Thursday, with shaking felt from north of Los Angeles down to the Mexican border. No damage or injuries were reported.

A preliminary reading by the U.S. Geological Survey showed a 4.5-magnitude quake struck at 7:49 p.m. about one mile south of San Bernardino, a city of about 200,000 people 55 miles east of Los Angeles. The USGS initially reported it at 4.9, then 5.0.
