3.6 Magnitude Earthquake Rattles Metro Los Angeles

The Los Angeles metro area was hit with a 3.6 magnitude earthquake Sunday, according to data from the United States Geological Survey.

The earthquake was recorded at a depth of 17 kilometers (10.5 miles) near Maywood and East Los Angeles.

There were numerous reports on social media of the earthquake being felt by those in the area around 7 a.m. (10 a.m. ET).

Several witnesses on the earthquake reporting site, European-Mediterranean Seismological Center, reported feeling a sharp jolt. Others described it as light shaking. Some people said it woke them up.

Following the quake, seismologist Lucy Jones wrote on Twitter that what you feel in a small earthquake depends on how close you are to it. “The closer you are, the sharper the motion,” she said.

No known damage has been reported.
