I thought the same thing. No one in my family felt it. 10 mins later, ABC7 news stated there was a 3.0

The mountains to the north of Rancho Cucamonga were formed by a supper quake about 12.5 some say. cucamonga peak rose out of the ground. In doing it exposed all the minerals you would find under ground. The Indians called it the magical place. The liked Red Hill the best. The magic of the mountain has been a major draw for years hickers bickers dune buggy shooters. Today now that it is a big City getting bigger it draws the people who live here. We have some of the healthiest seniors around. The Indians felt it had healing energy they came to fell the moment. You can to ride the new bike trail the open air mall come to Rancho Cucamonga and fell the Magic of the Mountain.
