A magnitude 4.2 earthquake hit the Yucaipa area on Wednesday and was felt across the Inland Empire.

The temblor struck at about 7:44 a.m. about five miles from Yuciapa and about nine miles from Moreno Valley. That's about 66 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

There were no early reports of damage from the quake, which was felt as far away as Riverside.
