Earthquake Shakes Disneyland

The 7.2 earthquake in Mexicali near San Diego was felt throughout all of So. Cal. Disneyland rides have been shut down for inspection. According to KABC/Channel 7, there were some people trapped in the elevators at the Disneyland Hotel. The last time all the Disneyland rides were closed because of an earthquake was the 5.4 Chino Hills earthquake in July of 2008.
We felt it in our apartment in Orange County. We felt the building swaying and we could see the stuff on our shelves rattling.
The rides in Disneyland are currently closed. I have not yet heard on when they will reopen.
Here's a map from the U.S. Geological Survey Website of the earthquake:

  1. Just went outside and saw that the Maliboomer is running. Not sure if the rides are reopened yet but it seems they are moving.

  2. Just got back from Disneyland. All the rides are up and running!
