After 4.1 earthquake, aftershocks keep Yorba Linda shaking

August 29, 2012 |  2:22 pm

Two small aftershocks have been reported in Yorba Linda, shortly after a magnitude 4.1 earthquake hit the area at 1:31 p.m. on Wednesday.

A shallow 2.1 earthquake registered at 1:34 p.m. and a second 1.5 aftershock was reported at 1:44 p.m.

The Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda reported there was no damage.

"It's a beautiful day to visit, we're open -- as usual -- til 5 p.m.," spokesman Jonathan Movroydis said.

Jeff Heel, whose parents own the Winery at Main Street in Yorba Linda, said they lost no bottles to the latest shaker but did feel it.

“It rolled for a little while, but this time we weren’t really affected,” Heel said. Even so, in a spirit of caution, he said he was taking down the winery’s displays to protect as much stock as possible in case of an aftershock.

Earlier in the month the winery lost about 10 bottles when a cluster of earthquakes struck the same area, he said.
