WATCH: Vin Scully Narrates Moderate Earthquake During Dodgers Game

BREA (CBS13) — A 5.1-magnitude earthquake has hit Southern California, north of Anaheim, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake struck at 9:09 p.m. had a depth of about 1.2 miles.

Reports from the scene say the quake lasted about 10 seconds and was over with.

The earthquake broke several water mains in Fullerton, according to the Fullerton Police Department.

It was preceded by a 3.6-magnitude earthquake in the same general area just an hour earlier.

Two aftershocks struck within a half an hour of the quake, at 3.4- and 3.6-magnitude. Since then, five light aftershocks below 3.0-magnitude hit the area.

USGS officials said a quake of this size means there’s a slim, five percent probability of a significant earthquake in the future.

Friday night’s earthquake happened to hit during the bottom of the sixth inning of a spring training matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers Angels and the Los Angeles Angels at Dodgers Stadium.

Legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully spliced his reaction to the earthquake with his play-by-play as if it were just another anecdote between pitches of a preseason game.

“A little tremor here in the ballpark,” he said. “I’m not sure if the folks felt it, but we certainly felt it here in press box row. A tremor and only that. Two balls and two strikes.”
