Southern California quake felt over large area
The magnitude 4.1 earthquake that hit Southern California on Saturday morning was centered on the San Andreas Fault, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake was felt over a large swath of the region, according to the USGS "Do You Feel It?" site, including Northridge, Marina del Rey, downtown L.A., Long Beach and West Hollywood. But the strongest jolt was felt near the epicenter in Devore, about 60 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
The temblor struck at 8:07 a.m. No damage or injuries were reported.
A 2.0 aftershock was reported a short time later nearby.The San Andreas Fault is one of California's most active and potentially dangerous, capable of producing what seismologists have called the catastrophic quake known as "The Big One." Saturday's quake, however, was considered small.
