BREAKING NEWS: Earthquake Shakes Southern California


CAMBRIA, Calif. (AP) -- An earthquake rocked the central coast Monday and sent tremors across a wide swath of Southern California.

The quake, at around 11:16 a.m. local time, was felt as a sustained but gentle rolling motion in downtown Los Angeles.

The U.S. Geological Survey gave it a preliminary magnitude of 6.5 and said it was centered north of the coastal town of Cambria. Cambria is about 185 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

The site is only a few miles from San Simeon, William Randolph Hearst's castle. Calls to the castle did not immediately go through.

Tad Weber, managing editor of The Tribune in San Luis Obispo, about 30 miles southeast of Cambria, said he was in a meeting when "all of a sudden there was a jolting and we look up and see the building swaying. I dove under a desk to wait it out."
