Channel Islands National Park spokeswoman Yvonne Menard says the bricks fell Thursday at a ranch building on Santa Cruz Island that dates to the 1860s.
- A strong natural disaster centered off the Ventura County coast rocked parts of the Southland Wednesday, swaying buildings in a wide area stretching from Woodland Hills to West Los Angeles to Burbank.
The quake caused Business Insider's offices in West Hollywood to sway for several minutes.
On social media, people across the Southern California region also reported feeling the quake, with many describing it as "rolling".
The Tsunami Warning Center reported there is no tsunami danger at this time.
Numerous more than 300 day visitors and campers who were on Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz and Anacapa islands when the temblor struck reported feeling a jolt and rolling motions, according to Yvonne Menard, a spokeswoman for the Channel Islands National Park. The agency initially said the earthquake's depth was 10.4 miles, but later updated figure to 6.2 miles.
"So far, thankfully, there hasn't been any damage reported out of this", he said.
Earthquakes of such size usually occur about once a year in Southern California, although the most recent one was in 2014, according to veteran seismologist Lucy Jones, recently retired from the USGS. "The offshore faults that produced today's M5.3 quake are part of the system that moves Southern California around a bend of the San Andreas fault", Jones said on her official Twitter account.
People aren't the only creatures whose nerves are rattled when an natural disaster occurs.
