Initial strikes of a 4.5-magnitude earthquake near South El Monte – CBS Los Angeles




The US Geological Survey reported that a primary earthquake of magnitude 4.5 struck the Los Angeles area late Friday night. The epicenter was less than two miles west-southwest of South Monte and it occurred at 11:38 pm

The earthquake’s focal point was roughly the same location as the M5.9 Whittier Narrows earthquake in 1987, according to seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones.

There were reports that residents felt the earthquake in La Habra, Long Beach, Oxnard, Ontario, Pasadena, near the Beverly Hills area, and other areas throughout Los Angeles County.

Some residents said they felt tremors from about three seconds to perhaps up to a minute.

All 106 Los Angeles city fire stations have activated each to check for damage in their respective areas, according to Los Angeles Fire Chief Ralph M. Terrazas.

Jones told CBS2 / KCAL9 that roughly two aftershocks with strengths of 2.1 and 1.6 have been reported.

This is one of the largest earthquakes in the Los Angeles Basin in a few years.

Jones said that 5% of the time, the initial earthquake may actually be a precursor to a larger earthquake.

And according to Jones, there is also a roughly 50% chance that an earthquake of around 3.0 magnitude will be felt.

Chief Terrazas said there were no reports of damage or injuries in Los Angeles on Friday night.

An initial survey thankfully found no earthquake damage or casualties within the city of Los Angeles. Please follow LAFD for emergency alerts and visit for basic information on disaster planning. #StaySafe
