Disneyland Halts Rides After Strong Earthquake Hits Southern California

Numerous parkgoers at Disneyland reported on Twitter that rides were shut for safety inspections after a magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit Southern California Friday evening at 8:19 p.m. Patrons also left movie theaters, while the Dodgers game continued uninterrupted.

The large earthquake centered in the Searles Valley near the town of Ridgecrest came on the heels of Thursday’s 6.4 quake in the same area, which caused road and building damage in the immediate area, which is over 100 miles from the city of Los Angeles. Thousands of aftershocks occurred after Thursday’s temblor.

No damage in Los Angeles was immediately reported, though areas closer to the epicenter reported power outages. The shaker was felt as far as Las Vegas and Kingman, Ariz.

Moviegoers streamed out of several movie theaters in the Los Angeles area, but no injuries were immediately reported.
