No major damage was immediately reported from a 4.2 earthquake that rattled the region Thursday afternoon.

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.

The quake was felt across L.A., including the San Fernando Valley, downtown L.A. and the Westside.

"Just a rolly," said an operator at Olive View Medical Center in Sylmar.

Hundreds of people told the U.S. Geological Survey "Did You Feel It" site that they felt the temblor.
