Tinseltown is all shook up.

A 5.1-magniture earthquake jolted Southern California Friday night, leaving in its wake a rockslide, water-line breaks, gas leaks and a power outage affecting an estimated 2,000 homes, according to the Associated Press. There were no reports of injuries or major damage.

The earthquake hit at 9:09 p.m., and more a hundred aftershocks were recorded, the U.S. Geological Survey said, with one registering a magnitude of 3.4.

The epicenter was near Brea, in Orange County, and the tremors stretched north to Ventura County and as a far south as San Diego.

Hollywood quickly took to social media to sound off on the earthquake, weighing in with a characteristic mix of humor and alarm.
