LOS ANGELES — A 3.6 magnitude earthquake was reported less than a mile from downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
“What you feel in a small earthquake like this morning depends on how close you are to it,” earthquake expert Lucy Jones tweeted. “Because it is 10 miles down, everyone is at least 10 miles from it. The closer you are, the sharper the motion.”
An average of five earthquakes with magnitudes between 3.0 and 4.0 occur annually in the greater Los Angeles area, the television station reported, citing a recent three-year data sample.
Over the past 10 days, there has been one earthquake of magnitude 3.0 or greater in the metropolitan area, the Times reported.
The Los Angeles Fire Department and Los Angeles County Fire Department said there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, KCBS reported.
