(Reuters) -A magnitude 4.6 earthquake struck Southern California northwest of Los Angeles on Friday, rattling a large space across the nation’s second-most populous metropolis, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) stated. But there have been no quick stories of harm or accidents.
The quake was centered about 9 miles (14.5 km) west of Thousand Oaks, a group within the coastal foothills about 40 miles northwest of downtown L.A., in line with the USGS.
The tremor was initially recorded at a magnitude of 5.1, however was downgraded later by the USGS to 4.6.
A crowd-sourced “Did You Feel It?” map posted on-line by the USGS confirmed that weak-to-light shaking was detected by residents throughout Los Angeles, with scattered stories of faint floor motion as far north as Bakersfield and as far south as San Diego.
Earthquakes of that dimension are commonplace in seismically energetic California and usually trigger little or no property harm.
