Earthquake rolls through Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES — A pre-dawn earthquake rolled across the Los Angeles basin
Monday, rattling residents from the San Fernando Valley to Long Beach.

The quake’s magnitude was 4.4 and it was centered 15 miles west-northwest of
the downtown civic center, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Los Angeles police and fire officials said there were no immediate reports of
damage.

“It felt like a bomb going off underneath our house,” said George McQuade, a
West Hills resident. “Nothing was damaged, but it sure woke everyone up. It was
an eye-opener.”

The 6:25 a.m. quake occurred at a depth of about 5 miles.

The epicenter was 6 miles from Beverly Hills, 7 miles from Universal City and 7
miles from Santa Monica, the USGS said.
