A magnitude 3.3 earthquake struck the Los Angeles area early Saturday with an epicenter about two miles southeast of Gardena, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The temblor, which hit about 12:36 a.m. PDT, registered at a depth of about 10 miles and produced light to moderate shaking in the area, according to USGS data.

Within a half hour more than 2,000 people had responded to the USGS's query "Did you feel it?", a standard question posed on the agency's website.
