The earthquake shook buildings and rattled windows, and was felt in San Diego, Valencia and the San Fernando Valley areas. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, and the Los Angeles Fire Department warned residents to prepare for aftershocks.
“If inside, when shaking starts, drop cover, hold on. Protect your head + neck while taking cover under sturdy furniture or near a sturdy interior wall, away from windows and doorways until shaking stops,” the LAFD tweeted.
The earthquake was also felt at the Los Angeles International Airport, where crews are checking the airfield and terminals for any signs of damage, the airport tweeted.
