California's largest earthquake in four years struck on Monday, causing Planet Earth to ring 'like a bell' and mountains to grow a foot taller, geologists said on Monday. The quake hit near the coastal city of San Simeon almost exactly half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, setting high-rise buildings swaying in both cities. Reuters.


The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce website shows a photo of the clock tower from before 11:15 a.m. yesterday. The yahoo news slide show includes a shot of the tower broken up on the street.
