An earthquake with a magnitude of 3.5 rattled the Los Angeles area Sunday night, but no injuries or damage were reported.
The quake struck two miles north of Inglewood at 9:17 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey, and was felt across a wide swath of the Los Angeles area.
Crews at the Los Angeles Fire Department’s 106 stations surveyed over 470 square miles and found no damage or injuries, spokesman Shawn Lenske said.
Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Michael Pittman said the shaking felt throughout the area was not enough to warrant a station- by-station survey of the area and no damage or injuries were reported.
The quake followed a magnitude of 2.5 temblor that struck near Baldwin Hills about 4:35 p.m Sunday.
Lucy Jones, a USGS seismologist and a research associate Caltech, said the earlier quake was a foreshock of the second and both were located on the Newport-Inglewood fault.
More than 4,300 responses were tallied by the USGS in the “Did You Feel It?” section of its website, including 293 from people in Culver City, 286 from Santa Monica, 273 from the Palms area and 250 from Mar Vista.
