3.6-magnitude earthquake rattles Southern California. ‘Well good morning Los Angeles’

·1 min read

A 3.6-magnitude earthquake shook Southern California awake Sunday.

The earthquake hit Sunday morning about 8 miles southeast of Los Angeles, geologists said.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported the 3.6-magnitude earthquake at about 7 a.m. No damage or injuries have been reported.

The 10.6-mile deep quake was felt through Southern California. People reported being shaken awake by the morning earthquake.

Thousands of people reported feeling the earthquake to USGS, and many shared their reactions on social media.

“Well good morning Los Angeles,” people said on Twitter.

Earthquake at 7 in the morning,” another person said. “Rise and grind I guess.”

Three days earlier, a 2.4-magnitude earthquake shook Inglewood southwest of Los Angeles. The 4.5-mile deep quake hit near Windsor Park, according to USGS.

More than 150 people from as far away as Carson and Pasadena reported feeling that tremor to the agency.

Magnitude measures the energy released at the source of the earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey says. It replaces the old Richter scale.

Quakes between 2.5 and 5.4 magnitude are often felt but rarely cause much damage, according to Michigan Tech.
