Los Angeles earthquake: 4.0 quake shakes up California


LOS ANGELES, California (AP/WJW) – A 4.0-magnitude earthquake hit the Los Angeles area around 4:45 a.m. local time.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the epicenter was just east of the Los Angeles International Airport, along Century Boulevard on the south side of Hollywood Park. It also was relatively deep, at 12 miles (19.9 kilometers).  

The USGS said light shaking was reported across the greater metropolitan area and no significant damage was expected.

Several foreshocks, the largest being 3.3, preceded the quake, and a series of tiny aftershocks followed.

FOX 8 sister station KTLA has not reported any damage from the earthquake.
