Five aftershocks follow 3.9 magnitude earthquake in Newhall
The temblor hit at 8:24 a.m., with the epicenter in the Newhall and Santa Clarita area, said seismologist Egill Hauksson with the California Institute of Technology. The quake was felt across a wide area, including the San Fernando Valley, Antelope Valley and L.A. basin, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
There was a series of five aftershocks between 8:27 a.m. and 9:27 a.m. after Sunday's quake, ranging between 1.8 and 2.5 in magnitude, Hauksson said. Data from the earthquake shows movement fairly close to the surface, he said.
Officials with the Los Angeles county and city fire departments both said there were no reports of significant damage from the quake.
