The LAPD went into earthquake mode and dispatched firefighters from all 106 stations throughout the area. An hour later, no injuries were reported, nor were there any power outages or damages.
Earthquake authorities thought the quake could have been an aftershock from the 4.4 quake that hit Los Angeles in March. After observing the location of the epicenter of the Sunday quake, officials determined the two events were too far apart to be connected.
Lucy Jones had tweeted that the new location was deeper and farther from the stations. To have the same signal at a further distance would mean that it must be bigger.
NBC4 viewers felt the shaking in Sherman Oaks, Tarzana, Simi Valley, Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades.
