Toronto’s Rebecca Lee-Bentham was shaken when a 5.1 magnitude earthquake on Friday shook Southern California, where she was playing the LPGA Tour’s Kia Classic.
“I was in bed, on my laptop during the earthquake. I felt the bed start to shake and was wondering why everything was shaking. It only lasted several seconds. I thought the house was going to collapse, but it was over before I knew it. It was my first earthquake experience,” she said.
