1963 - Community of Canyon Country founded; first Frontier Days celebration [story]


A 5.1-magnitude shaker hit 1.25 miles east of La Habra on Friday at 9:09:41 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

It was preceded by a 3.6-manitude foreshock in the same area at 8:03:39 p.m.

Since that time, numerous measurable aftershocks have rattled the area, the largest measuring 3.4 at 9:11 p.m., 3.6 at 9:30 p.m. and 2.9 at 9:47 p.m.

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s deputies spent the next couple of hours conducting a thorough check of all public facilities in the SCV, including but not limited to schools and bridges.
