L.A. (Associated Press) — On Friday, Southern California was shaken by a moderate earthquake that was felt around the region.
It was not immediately reported that any buildings or other infrastructure had been damaged, nor were any injuries reported.
It was around 45 miles (72 kilometers) east of downtown Los Angeles when the magnitude 4.1 earthquake struck at 10:55 a.m., according to the United States Geological Survey.
The epicenter of the earthquake was approximately one mile (one kilometer) to the northwest of Lytle Creek, which is located in the San Gabriel Mountains.
In most cases, an earthquake of this magnitude is not powerful enough to inflict major damage. Downtown Los Angeles had a slight swaying sensation as a result of the earthquake.
Although there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage to buildings or other infrastructure within the city, the Los Angeles Fire Department stated that there were no reports of any such incidents.
In addition, fire authorities in San Bernardino County, which is located to the east of Los Angeles County, disclosed that there were no reports of damage or requests for assistance in connection with the earthquake.
An experienced seismologist named Lucy Jones stated in a post on social media that the earthquake took place near Cajon Pass, which is located at the point where the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults have converged.
