    Earthquake Shakes Up Southern California


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MelissaF took these photos inside of a Stater Brothers store in Yorba Linda, California, less than 10 minutes after an earthquake rocked the area on March 28. MelissaF and her family were just leaving a restaurant where they had eaten dinner when the earthquake started. "It's the biggest one I have felt in years, and my first time being outside," she said. "I was personally feeling a bit of shock. I was a bit worried and still am that a bigger one is on its way."

    Before heading home, the family stopped in the store where employees were cleaning up the mess the earthquake had left. MelissaF does not expect that they are in the clear, yet. She would "like to encourage people to be prepared by stocking water, non-perishable food, batteries and medicines."

    Well that 5.3 shook up the whole sleepy town of Yorba Linda. Our local grocery store, Stater Brothers, took the biggest brunt of it all.

    We were just coming out of Sushi Yoshi's in Yorba Linda when this happened. We heard glass breaking and a few people were running out of the buildings.

    The epicenter was in La Habra, CA according to local media outlets.

    It is a great reminder for all of us to be earthquake prepared. After a little shake we had a couple of weeks ago, I had my husband refill our emergency 5 gallon water bottles.
