A cluster of earthquakes rattled the South Bay area of Los Angeles on Monday morning, according to the US Geological Survey.
The largest of the cluster of tremors carried a 4.0 magnitude and occurred at a depth of 19.9 kilometres and was reportedly felt by 3,500 residents in Lennox.
A 3.3 quake preceded it and also happened in the Lennox area, alongside a number of other smaller earthquakes early this morning.
The LA County Fire Department told CBSLA that they had no received any reports of damage in the area.
Seismologist Dr Lucy Jones tweeted: “The M4.0 that just happened was under Lennox, CA, near Inglewood.
“Very deep at 20 km, so everyone is at least 20 km away. Would have been felt by most people awake in LA. Movement was thrust, probably not on any mapped fault.”
