People across the Southland chimed in on the occurance. Most quakes pass with little notice, but this one seemed to wake up quite a few.

Reports of shaking were felt in the San Fernando Valley, Antelope Valley, Ventura County, Orange County and possibly as far south as San Diego, according to the USGS.

No major damage was reported to businesses or home, but one local man in Palos Verdes reported a decoration falling off a shelf. Most veteran L.A. residents took the quake in stride, with the usual goofs about panic in the streets dotting social media.
