Magnitude-4.5 earthquake rattles L.A. area

Southern California was jolted early Tuesday by a light natural disaster that was felt across multiple counties, scientists said.

Its epicenter was located 8 miles north of Cabazon and 20 miles northwest of Palm Springs.

The 4.5 quake was followed by a smaller 3.2 aftershock and numerous micro quakes, according to the USGS.

Quakes of that size generally don't cause any serious damage and there were no immediate reports of any problems related to it.

Within 40 minutes of the bigger quake, more than 6,700 people had reported, via the official U.S. Geological Survey website, that they had felt it.

"Stand by for communications with your battalion chiefs for (possible) injuries and damage assessment", the dispatcher broadcast to all stations.

A 4.5-magnitude natural disaster hit the area at a depth of 5 miles shortly before 5 a.m. local time, according to the USGS.

Maps show it could be felt in Los Angeles, Long Beach and coastal areas of Orange County. It was centered in the same region, the USGS reported.
