ANAHEIM, Calif. (KGTV) — Guests were forced from the fastest ship in the galaxy at Disneyland Friday, after a massive earthquake struck Southern California.
The magnitude 7.1 quake hit the Ridgecrest area about 160 miles east of the theme park just before 8:20 p.m.
Video from Disneyland after the earthquake showed guests being evacuated from the park’s Millennium Falcon ride in “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.” Guests in other areas of the park also reported rides temporarily closed for employees to conduct safety inspections.
A 6.4 magnitude earthquake rattled Southern California on Thursday and officials said it was the largest to hit the region in 20 years. The quake struck near the city of Ridgecrest, which is located about 160 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

The Golden State Warriors are in the process of asking San Francisco city officials for permission to move forward with plans for a 142-room hotel topped by 24 market-rate apartments connected to the franchise’s nearly $2 billion arena development, co-owner and CEO Joe Lacob said.
The Warriors publicly disclosed the hotel and apartment plans — part of the $1 billion-plus Chase Center arena development — in February. But Lacob said the project has been under consideration for years.
“It’s right on the schedule that we (thought), but we were deciding” whether to build the hotel/apartments, he said.
A 27-year-old man was arrested at Oakland International Airport on Sunday morning after he allegedly brandished a small knife he said he intended to use to harm a police officer, a spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said.
The man, whose name is being withheld pending formal charges, can be seen on surveillance video released by the Sheriff’s Department apparently looking into a parked patrol car.
Sgt. Ray Kelly said Sunday that “luckily our deputies were not in the car. They were out on foot patrol.”
For travelers who seek out historic hotels, learning about a property firsthand and from an expert is a lovely perk. No brochure or website can make history come alive — or indulge questions — the way a human guide can.
Someone's in TONNES of trouble! Australian and US authorities have seized more than 1.7 tonnes of ‘ice’ bound for Australia. Luckily we worked with our US buddies and were able to stop the shipment before it reached our shores. This is the largest ever shipment of methylamphetamine bound for Australia and the largest ever domestic seizure of meth on record in the US. If it had made it to Australian streets, it’s estimated to be worth approximately $1.29 billion dollars and equates to some 17 million hits. Six people have been arrested for their alleged involvement. Help us celebrate and post your best ice puns below. 👇👇👇

A plane crashed into a California home where football fans were gathered to watch Sunday’s Super Bowl, killing five people. Four people in house in Yorba Linda were killed, as was the pilot, after the plane fell from the sky. “It felt like an earthquake and then my husband said, ‘No, it’s a plane,’” said one neighbor in video posted on social media. The main cabin of the airplane along with one of the engines came to rest in the backyard of a home, and a plane wing landed in the street.
The National Weather Service in San Francisco Bay tweeted, “STAY WELL BACK FROM THE OCEAN OR RISK CERTAIN DEATH.”
