It was up in Chino Hills. Your dad is most probably okay, there were people closer to the quake that didn't have problems.

Still, yeah, WOW! There was quite a bit of rattling going on inside my place. No damage at all though, not even a picture askew.

Everyone seems to be fine so far. My parents had two paintings fall off the wall in Placentia, but otherwise things look good. My son is taking a summer school class at his high school and called and said the school was evacuated until it is inspected for safety rules, but he said everything was fine. It was just a decent size jolt, but nothing like Northridge.
