April 24, 2012 at 10:40:25 AM at epicenter

M 5.9 2012/04/23 21:21:46 0.321 125.412 Depth 55.8 km MOLUCCA SEA
April 24, 2012 at 05:21:45 AM at epicenter
145 km (90 miles) SSE of Manado, Sulawesi, Indonesia
Nearly 2 million people will have felt a light shaking
Hypocenter at an intermediate depth which is the reason why the earthquake will be felt in a vast area.
M3.9 in the Greater Los Angeles area
The shallow quake happened at 10:37:02 AM (epicenter time)
The epicenter was almost below the beach and close to San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Beach and Mission Viejo. One of the experience reports that we received from Mission Viejo was talking from : Quick jolt followed by moderate shaking for short duration.
See below for the many other I Have Felt It reports that we have received.
USGS has calculated that nearly 164,000 people will have experienced a light shaking and that nearly 16 million people will have felt a weak to very weak shaking.
Light shaking should have been noticed in the following cities (theoretically) : Laguna Niguel, Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano.
Based on human reports from USGS, but also from earthquake-report.com, we can conclude that close to the direct epicenter a light to moderate shaking has been perceived.
The Orange County Register writes : Laurie Girand lives on Peppertree Bend, not more than a few hundred feet from the quake’s epicenter. “It felt — without the explosion — like a small plane had crashed in the yard,” she said. “It was just a shock, and a shock that left you wondering.”
The Newport-Inglewood fault is the probable responsible for this earthquake.
The San Onofro nuclear plant reported no problems. Considerable damage or serious injuries is not expected from this earthquake.
There was NO disruption of power, telecommunications, traffic lights, etc

Useful information to read this daily earthquake list
This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world.
If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
For your comfort, we will provide in most cases a Google Satellite Map to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news. The 0.99 US$ QuakeSOS+ version will support the activities of SOS Earthquakes.
