The 3.6 earthquake that hit early Monday deep under the Santa Monica Bay was felt across the Westside and South Bay.

The quake hit at 2:17 a.m. and was followed by three aftershocks, the largest measuring magnitude 2.0.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey's "Did You Feel It" survey, hundreds of people said they felt the temblor. Most of the responses came from Santa Monica, Culver City, Hawthorne, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and portions of Los Angeles near the epicenter.

The most responses -- nearly 200, came from Manhattan Beach, which was close to where the temblor struck.

There were no reports of damage or injury.
