On the morning of Jan. 17, 1994, a magnitude-6.7 earthquake rattled Los Angeles. The origin of the Northridge earthquake was near the intersection of Reseda Boulevard and Arminta Street in the northwest San Fernando Valley, but the quake caused strong ground motion across a widespread part of Southern California. Most of the damage occurred in communities north of Los Angeles, but there were pockets of hard hit areas, like Sherman Oaks, West Hollywood and even Santa Monica — a seaside community about 15 miles away from the Northridge earthquake epicenter. This map featuring archived reports from NBC4 crews and video from the station’s helicopter show the damage at some of those locations.
