Southern California quake rattles nerves, but creates no damage
The 3.8. magnitude earthquake that rattled Southern California on Saturday shook some nerves but caused no damage.
The quake, centered near the San Andreas Fault about 60 miles from downtown L.A. in Devore, was felt over a large swath of the region, according to the U.S. Geological Survey's "Did You Feel It?" website, including in Northridge, Marina del Rey, downtown Los Angeles, Long Beach and West Hollywood.
A dispatcher with the San Bernardino County sheriff’s station in Rancho Cucamonga said there were no reports of damage or injuries.
In the mountain community of Crestline, morning diners were barely disturbed from their coffees. Ashley Elledge was serving at Crestline Cafe at the time. “We all looked at each other and said, ‘That was an earthquake,’ ” Elledge said.
The temblor struck at 8:07 a.m. Saturday.
A 2.0 aftershock was reported nearby a short time later.
