Just before 2 a.m., a magnitude 3.3 temblor struck the Fontana area, about 40 miles east of Los Angeles. It was felt in neighborhood San Bernardino County cities as well as several cities in the eastern San Gabriel Valley.

Then at 3:49 a.m., a quake occurred in Northern California off the coast of Petrolia in Humboldt County. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, that quake was felt around the county.

The USGS classified both temblors as "light."
