There were no reports of damage.
An earthquake of magnitude 3.6 was registered on Sunday less than one and a half kilometers from the center of Los Angeles, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The earthquake occurred at a depth of 17.2 kilometers, which is why not so many people felt it. There were no reports of damage. According to the Geological Survey, it was felt from Santa Clarita to Orange County.
“Your feelings from a small earthquake, such as this morning, depending on how close you are to it. Since it happened at a depth of 17 kilometers, everyone was at least 17 kilometers away from it. The closer you are, the sharper the movements,” wrote earthquake expert Lucy Jones on Twitter.
Over the past 10 days, one earthquake of at least 3.0 magnitude has occurred nearby.
On average, the Greater Los Angeles area experiences five earthquakes ranging in magnitude from 3.0 to 4.0 per year, according to a sample over the past three years.
