BREAKING NEWS: 5.8 Magnitude Earthquake Hits In Southern California
Reports are coming in that a 5.8 magnitude earthquake is jostling things around in Southern California. According to a report with ABC News, the tremors were reported at 10:45 am local time today (June 24th.)
As you can see from the image below, the epicenter was near Cartoga, California which is about 180 miles north of Los Angeles. Thankfully reports coming in suggest that no damage or injuries have been reported. The quake was in quite a rural area of the state.
The news about the Southern California earthquake comes a day after a 7.4 magnitude quake hit Mexico near Huatulco killing 6 and damaging hundreds of homes in the area. Injury reports extended as far as Mexico City which is 300 miles from the epicenter.
As we’ve previously reported here at MickeyBlog, Disneyland Resort (located in Anaheim in Southern California) is readying itself for reopening. Last week Disney announced that Downtown Disney District will welcome back guests starting July 9th followed by the Disneyland and Disney California theme parks on July 17th.Two of Disneyland’s three onsite resorts, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will reopen on July 23rd. No plans have been made as of yet to reopen the Disneyland Hotel.
Though seismic activity is not uncommon in Southern California, it is, of course, a story that we’ll be following closely here at MickeyBlog. We promise to keep you updated about this and other Disneyland-related news and updates.
