A magnitude 4.6 earthquake that struck just west of Upland at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday was the most recent of hundreds of aftershocks that have startled Southern Californians after the Feb. 28 Upland earthquake. The afternoon jolt was preceded by two foreshocks Tuesday, a magnitude 3.3 temblor at 7:12 a.m. and a magnitude 2.6 at 7:19 a.m. Those, in turn, had been preceded by a magnitude 3.4 shock about three miles farther northwest at 1:47 a.m. Tuesday.

A magnitude 4.6 earthquake that struck just west of Upland at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday was the most recent of literally hundreds of aftershocks that have startled Southern Californians after the Feb. 28 Upland earthquake.

A small earthquake rattled the Upland area early Sunday morning, but there were no reports of damage or injury. The 3.3-magnitude temblor struck at 5:56 a.m., and was centered about 3 miles northwest of Upland, said Bob Finn, spokesman for Caltech in Pasadena. Finn said Sunday's quake is the latest in a series of more than 500 aftershocks to a 5.5-magnitude temblor on Feb. 28.

An apparent aftershock of the Upland earthquake on Feb. 28 shook the Upland-Pomona area at 10:25 p.m. Wednesday but apparently caused no damage or injury. Caltech seismologists said it was centered in the same area as the earlier temblor, 4 miles northeast of Upland. Upland police dispatcher Sharon Goodwin said, "I sure did feel it but we only got a few calls on it." Pomona police said they hadn't felt it nor had they received any calls.

This time around, there was little call for a wrecking ball, and barely a bulldozer was needed. No bridges had collapsed, no city blocks were ablaze, no World Series was postponed. The Jaws of Life were held in reserve, awaiting the next freeway smashup. Call it the handyman's earthquake, more a fix-it job than a catastrophe. The Moderate One was made to order for a putty knife in the hands of a glazier, and a good excuse for do-it-yourselfers to stay home from work.

Communities at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains counted 30 injuries and nearly $14 million in earthquake damage to structures, but residents who spent Thursday sweeping up broken glass and replacing toppled books acknowledged that it could have been worse. "I think we all know we were fortunate this time around," said Upland City Councilman Al Canestro. The 5.5-magnitude quake struck Wednesday afternoon three miles northwest of Upland.

Why does one earthquake feel so much different from another? The earthquake that rattled through Southern California on Wednesday may have felt quite different to people who experienced the Montebello quake last June 12, even if they were in the same place both times. Workers in office buildings in downtown Los Angeles, for example, reported feeling a sharp jolt from the 4.5 magnitude Montebello quake, whereas Wednesday's 5.5 temblor produced a long rolling motion.

A strong earthquake rumbled beneath Southern California on Wednesday, rattling residents throughout the region but inflicting most of its damage in foothill cities on the Los Angeles and San Bernardino county line. Only a handful of injuries were reported. The 5.5-magnitude quake began shaking at 3:43 p.m. and lasted for 30 seconds. It was centered where two major faults meet in the San Gabriel Mountains about three miles northwest of Upland--about 40 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

Bob and Yolanda Fry, who have lived for nearly three years in a white, two-story home overlooking San Antonio Dam and the valley below Mt. Baldy, were just sitting down in front of their big-screen TV to watch the afternoon news. A moment later, as a 5.5-magnitude earthquake struck on Wednesday, they became a part of it. "Let me tell you, the epicenter was right underneath this house," a shaken but nervously exhilarated Fry said afterward. "It knocked everything off the mantle.
