Hi Gang,
                Seasons greetings from the "land down under"

   just been catching up on december quake reports from the USGS site
and found a report that seems to be unsubstantiated

A M5.5 in the Whittier area SW of downtown LA,   it must surely be incorrect
specially as far as magnitude is concerned.   There are no record files in 
database showing that any of you guys recorded the event.
the felt report of MMII doesnt fit a M5.5 at 11 km depth, it would have 
been quite
strong and damaging .... maybe it was a M2.5  ???

the mind boggles   ;)
