Authorities said there was no indication of major damage after two earthquakes shook Southern California on Tuesday night.

A magnitude 4.4 earthquake -- followed immediately by a 2.2 quake -- hit around Yorba Linda at 11:23 p.m.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said a preliminary check found no damage, as did the Orange County Fire Authority. Both agencies lifted their earthquake alert operations after midnight.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the temblor struck 29 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

The USGS's "Did You Feel It?" feature included responses from as far away as Thousand Oaks and Santa Clarita.
