At 8:18 PM on December 5, many students felt the earth shaking beneath them. This was due to the earthquake just outside of Ludlow, CA - an area 117 miles from Los Angeles. The depth of the quake was 3.7 miles and the magnitude was 5.1. Tremors were felt in both Las Vegas and San Diego. Good thing Auen and Fawcett had those renovations...
