Magnitude 4.0 Quake Rocks Southern California; Some On South Coast Feel It


No damage was reported as a result of the quake, which occurred at 4:44 a.m.

Some people on the South Coast are reporting feeling an earthquake which rocked much of Southern California early Monday morning.

The magnitude 4.0 quake occurred at 4:44 a.m. It was centered in the community of Lennox, which is near Los Angeles International Airport. No damage has been reported.

The quake was felt throughout the Los Angeles basin. Some people in Ventura County also noticed it, but the reports were much more scattered than in places like the San Fernando Valley. There were even a few people in Southern Santa Barbara County who say they noticed it.

The early-morning quake was preceded by two smaller quakes centered in the same area, but those temblors weren't as widely felt in the region.
