Quake Updates

Sounds like buildings have been evacuated. Roderick at LAO is blogging the quake also. Los Angeles City Council was in session at City Hall apparently they've taken a 15 minute recess.
Metrolink is up and running, they've just rolled by the building here in West Covina.
I'm fascinated by TV coverage. They are hovering helicopters downtown. You'd think be now they'd be flying over Chino Hills or DBar to check for damage there?
Lt. Salibe at Walnut Diamond Bar Sheriff's Station said there are no reports of damage or injury in their service area.
I'm looking for tales of how the quake affected you. Let me know. You can send email to frank.girardot@sgvn.com or simply write your story in the comments.
CalTech now says the quake measured 5.4 on the Richter scale..
No word from Edison or the Gas company about outages or other problems yet...
Paula Green, Director of communications at Citrus College said officials there have cancelled classes and asked all students to go home.
The closure affected about 6,000 students. Green did not know if the school would reopen Wednesday. There were no reports of damage or injuries at the Glendora college.

There's been aftershocks
Here's a link to the USGS CalTech page several aftershocks are listed
