Los Angeles area rattled by trio of earthquakes


A trio of earthquakes rattled the Los Angeles area early Monday, the largest reaching magnitude 4.0.

The quake, which was recorded at 4:44 a.m. local time, was centered in the Lennox area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The large temblor was felt across Southern California.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a tweet that “a 4.0 earthquake in Inglewood shook the L.A. area this morning” and that the Los Angeles Fire Department had conducted a survey of the city and “reports no damage.”

Before, two earthquakes, magnitudes 3.3 and 2.5, jolted the same area around 4:15 a.m.

“It rumbled the house,” Dorothy Allen, a resident, told NBC Los Angeles. There were no reports of damage, the station reported.
