Downtown los Angeles!fashion/art district. / Light shaking (MMI IV) : Light shaking continuous now for about 7 hrs more so. Almost no one knows that earthquake tremmors at low magnitudes can go on for days. Even the very people who created this website think that several minutes are the only time option considering duration and they are wrong. Friction starts below ground level ... especially when they happen in hot climates. | 3 users found this interesting.
