Earthquake in California

Just seen (via a non-Geography friend on Facebook, of all places) that there has been an earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter Scale in California - the epicentre was 29 miles from downtown Los Angeles.
This is the latest USGS map:

Brief report from the BBC here and several links on the Geography Newsroom website. No reports of the damage as yet, but there have been several aftershocks already.
