Visitors to Disneyland got a shock yesterday when the park was hit by a 5.1 Magnitude Earthquake. No damage or injuries were reported in Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure Park.
The quake started at 9.09pm local time at a depth of only 0.6 miles. The earthquake was centered one mile from La Habra, California which is around 10 miles from Disneyland in Anaheim.

“Tonight’s earthquake is the second in two weeks, and reminds us to be prepared,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said.
