The accompanying footage, captured Thursday as a 5.3-magnitude natural disaster struck near the Channel Islands off Southern California, shows a bald eagle dad briefly abandoning his three chicks, who are left to nervously ponder what might be happening.

A USGS map shows the location of a magnitude 5.3 natural disaster that struck off the Channel Islands around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, April 5, 2018.

A 6.0 magnitude natural disaster rocked some areas in Mindanao, including Davao City, Thursday, April 5, with its epicenter located 31 kilometer (km) Southeast of Tarragona, Davao del Norte.

"We would expect aftershocks, and there is the potential for some triggered seismicity", Andrews said. The temblor was initially measured at 5.0 in magnitude but was upgraded to 5.3 a short time later. It struck about 10.5 miles underground, the USGS said. "I just want to get myself a T-shirt that says, 'I survived my first quake'".

Active shooter reported at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, Calif.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says it's also responding to the shooting at YouTube's suburban campus. City officials told KRON that they have received multiple 911 calls from the YouTube campus regarding a shooting.

"Earthquakes are not at all predictable".

KTLA reported that shaking was felt in West LA, 85 miles east of the epicenter.

"So far, thankfully, there hasn't been any damage reported out of this", he said. They described the temblor as a "strike-slip" event. Some light structural damage was reported on the islands, but there were no other reports of any injuries or major damage. Five of the islands are part of Channel Islands National Park - San Miguel, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz, Anacapa, and Santa Barbara islands.

One woman who was in town on a business trip said she was on the 24th floor of a building when it happened.
