A magnitude 3.2 earthquake struck near Simi Valley Saturday afternoon, but no damage or injuries were reported.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake rumbled through just before 3 p.m., with an epicenter about 3 miles north of Simi Valley. A smaller aftershock followed a few minutes later.

I was in the master's bedroom, in the second floor when I heard a loud noise coming from our garage beneath our room, like something hit our house/garage. I also felt a big jolt for a second.

I checked the internet, and learned it was an earthquake here in Simi Valley. For the first time, I heard the sound of a moving earth under our house (for 2 seconds)! The sound was like in the movies! I believe that the epicenter was under our house!
