There was a huge noise that shook houses for miles around just a few minutes ago, followed by tons of police and ambulance sirens. Anyone know anything about what happened?

We are between Garfield and Ellis, and Gothard and Goldenwest, and we also had our house shake. I don't know what this was, but seem like an explosion.

Our house shook in Eastside Costa Mesa. Friends reported the feeling and hearing the same boom at the beach and at South Coast Plaza.

there had been a terrible car accident on Garfield and Beach. A honda accord had ran right into the back of a semi truck. It was really bad. I believe someone did pass in this accident

Edison cleans the beach front towers occasionally and it's very loud... much like a sonic boom.

We heard it too. Thought it was an earthquake but nothing shook but the windows and doors. My wife & I thought it odd that we didn't "feel it" but just heard the windows and doors rattling. Our daughter said all the windows in the gameroom were visibly shaking but she didn't feel it either. Sonic boom? But it wasn't a "boom". rattling went on for several seconds. Strange.

What caused the ambulance to explode in the Fountain Valley Hospital parking lot?
Were there any injuries/deaths?

Adams and Alahbama.
Felt it.
Thought it was after shock from earlier quake but it was too quick.
my money is on a big explosion.
If it was felt from Costa Mesa to La Mirada it must have been big.

I am on Bolsa and Springdale.

I felt it too. I also thought that it was an aftershock, but it was one instant boom. It was like a sonic boom or expolosion.

The boom felt from Costa Mesa to La Mirada was last year... MAR 2009 ..

It was big enough to shake my house. I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one to feel it. I thought maybe I was being hyper sensitive because of the quake yesterday.

[I heard that it was a boat that exploded in Huntington Harbor. 6 hook and ladder trucks on PCH and some emergancy transport vehicles. Not sure anyone could survive that....
