Early Morning Magnitude-4.0 Earthquake Shakes Southern California

A magnitude-4.0 earthquake was one of three in the same area early Monday that rattled parts of Southern California.

The quakes were centered in the Lennox area, just east of Los Angeles International Airport. The strongest quake followed earthquakes of magnitude 3.3 and 2.5 in the same part of southwest Los Angeles County.

“It rumbled the house,” said resident Dorothy Allen, who was at The Forum vaccination site early Monday.

Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones noted the quakes’ depths.

“Very deep at 20 km, so everyone is at least 20 km away,” Jones tweeted. “Would have been felt by most people awake in LA. Movement was thrust, probably not on any mapped fault.”

Shaking from the magnitude-4.0 earthquake was reported in the South Bay, parts of the San Fernando Valley, and other areas of Los Angeles and Orange counties.

There were no reports of damage.
