The 5.1 La Habra earthquake on March 28 caused more than $2 million in damage in Orange County.
But in Los Angeles, away from the worst shaking, many shrugged it off. The Freeway Series at
Movie theaters kept showing films.
And an audio recording from the Los Angeles Philharmonic shows the orchestra rolled with the quake rolling. The orchestra was playing Ravel's "Daphnis and Chloe" when the quake struck.
The recording captures the audience gasping at the shaking. But the orechestra played on. The L.A. Phil said that lights swayed and some members of the audience raced to the exits.
