- The 5.3-magnitude earthquake that struck in the Channel Islands region on Thursday afternoon did not cause any immediate damage or injuries, but it gave a pretty strong jolt to an eagles’ nest near the epicenter.
- Video from the National Park Service shows the treetop nest shaking violently during the quake. An adult bald eagle quickly flies away, leaving several baby eagles in the nest, apparently stunned by the shockwaves.
Watch the moment below, via KABC and the National Park Service:
The earthquake struck the Channel Islands region about 38 miles southwest of the mainland city of Ventura, California, and about 86 miles west of Los Angeles, the US Geological Survey said.
Local news outlets reported that the temblor was felt from the western San Fernando Valley city of Woodland Hills to West Los Angeles, and further east toward Burbank.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
