“You all felt the earthquake, right?” one man asked as he exited his apartment complex. “I wasn’t sure if it was just the brownies kicking in.” Quote of the night. @MattHjourno @ronlin @latimes #earthquake latimes.com/california/story…

Still waiting for the "moment magnitude" (most accurate) for tonight's earthquake in Carson. Current estimate is M4.4. Location is just north of the 1933 Long Beach zone.
