Earthquake hits Los Angeles

Just about a little pass midnight, Los Angeles was struck by a magnitude 3.7 earthquake sending light tremors across Southern California.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the earthquake hit at 12.03am. It centred about half a mile southeast of Slauson and La Brea avenues.

Residents across the city were waken by the tremors, which were recorded in Long Beach, Santa Monica, West Hollywood and up to Burbank.

Los Angeles International Airport tweeted that the earthquake had been felt but reported no damage.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said the LA Fire Department had been activated to conduct its routine survey of the city to assess for any damage.

The earthquake occurred in the vicinity of the Newport-Inglewood Fault, which has long been considered one of Southern California’s top seismic danger zones, running under some of the region’s most densely populated areas.

An average of five earthquakes with magnitudes between 3.0 and 4.0 occur per year in the greater Los Angeles area, according to recent data.

According to USGS, the latest quake occurred at a depth of 7.4 miles.
