A magnitude 4.1 earthquake, first estimated to be 4.5, centered about one mile southeast of Rowland Heights struck at 2:32 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake was felt strongly in downtown Los Angeles. Fullerton Fire Department Battalion Chief John Stokes said the shaking there lasted around 20 seconds

"This is a normal aftershock sequence," said Lucy Jones of Caltech's Seismological Laboratory.

So you didn't read the study then, eh?

Read it. Who is Michael Bastasch? My first post was fracking with a question mark. Quoting your article I capped doubt and could because I can't underline it. "The article notes that seismologists DOUBT fracking had anything to do with the LA quake, but environmentalists argue that fracking COULD be a culprit." Something wrong with asking the question? I'm certain this argument could go on forever or until you ignite your tap water then I win and it's too late for both of us.
