A 4.4-magnitude earthquake struck in east Los Angeles county Tuesday evening, but no injuries or damage were immediately reported.
The earthquake struck at 7:33 p.m. 2.7 miles north of La Verne, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
It was felt at police headquarters in downtown Los Angeles and in Glendale, Lakewood, other parts of Los Angeles County and Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties.
A resident in Lakewood reported a “real sharp and fast” shaking.
The USGS reported that a second quake, with a magnitude of 3.4, struck near the same area about a minute after the first.
There were no immediate reports of damage in Los Angeles or La Verne, police in both cities said.
A Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatch supervisor said the department had received no reports of damage or injuries.
No damage or injuries were reported in Pasadena, police there said.
Police and fire departments dispatched personnel to check for damage.
Seismologist Lucy Jones said the quake should not be expected to have done damage to structures. She said the quake was not on the Sierra Madre fault, one of the largest in the region, but on an ancillary structure.
