Seismologists upgraded an earthquake that rattled the Newhall area to a 4.3 earthquake from 4.2, and it was followed by a relatively large 3.0 aftershock.

The main quake occurred at 1:47 p.m. and was followed by the 3.0 temblor at 2:35 p.m. The quake was felt across Los Angeles, including the San Fernando Valley, downtown Los Angeles and the Westside. Hundreds of people told the U.S. Geological Survey "Did You Feel It" site that they felt the temblor.

Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Mark Savage said the department had received no calls for assistance due to the temblor, which was centered near Newhall.

There have been no reports of damage.
