A 4.6 magnitude tremor rocks SoCal

The earthquake erupted off the coast of Malibu and startled students and faculty at the school.

According to the United States Geological Survey, a 4.6 magnitude earthquake struck Southern California today at 1:47 p.m.

Aftershocks of the earthquake hit parts as far as San Fernando and were felt in Van Nuys, with several buildings and classrooms experiencing shaking from the earthquake. 

College and Career Counselor Mr. Arnulfo Castaneda shared how the earthquake moved objects in their office.

“The college office cabinets were shaking rough,” he said. 

Mr. Castaneda rescheduled meetings with his students as a precautionary measure from the tremor. 

“I would rather be safe than sorry,” he finished.

Senior Isaac Ramirez shared how he felt at the beginning of the earthquake and his thoughts on it afterward.

“I felt surprised because it shook my class intensely,” he said. “I feel fine, but was quite concerned about what the shaking could’ve been. But I quickly came back to reality and realized it was just an earthquake.”

Shortly after the earthquake stopped, the administration made an announcement asking for students and staff to remain in their classrooms as a preventative measure instead of evacuating.
