The City of Santa Monica’s Office of Emergency Management and the Los Angeles Fire Department did not receive reports of damage following a magnitude 3.4 earthquake near Santa Monica on Monday, those agencies told Santa Monica Mirror.
The earthquake reportedly occurred at a shallow depth of 4.3 miles beneath the epicenter at 8:05 a.m. It was likely felt by many people in the area as a light vibration.
Shaking could have been felt in the towns and cities of Malibu, Topanga, Calabasas, Santa Monica, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Inglewood, Hawthorne, Burbank and Los Angeles.
“The LAFD remained in a normal operating mode following the seismic event … and did not receive any 9-1-1 calls or other related service requests,” an LAFD spokesperson said in an email. “Though some manner of damage or injury could have conceivably occurred in or beyond our jurisdiction, none is known to our agency.”
