A Channel Islands National Park live nest camera, hosted on Explore.org, captured a bald eagle dad casually minding his own business with his little eaglets when the quake struck. The adult eagle eventually returns to the nest to check on the shaken babies.

Some bricks fell from a chimney at an 1860s ranch on Santa Cruz Island, but no one was hurt, said Yvonne Menard, spokeswoman for Channel Islands National Park. No evacuations were ordered.

A 5.3 magnitude natural disaster shook southern California this week, the strongest quake to rumble the area in many years.

The natural disaster rattled homes in the Los Angeles area and beyond as Southern California saw its largest quake in more than four years, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake occurred at 12:29 p.m.in the Channel Islands region, about 38 miles (61 kilometers) southwest of the mainland city of Ventura.

It was produced by offshore faults that "are part of the system that moves Southern California around a bend of the San Andreas fault", seismologist Lucy Jones tweeted.

"We now have no reports of damage or injuries", spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.
