A magnitude 5.1 quake centered near La Habra tonight was felt across the Eastside, from East L.A. to Echo Park. There are no early reports of any major damage, and a pre-season game at Dodger Stadium continued as normal after the earthquake hit at 9:09 p.m. LADWP¬†says that water and power systems are “reporting as ok,” and Metro¬† found no damage to its rail lines.
