Earthquake Of 4.4 Magnitude Rattles Los Angeles, California

A 4.4-magnitude earthquake shook the Los Angeles area in California, USA on Monday morning. The earthquake came as a surprise to many but  no immediate reports of serious damage have been heard.


The U.S. Geological Survey said that the earthquake, centered about 6 miles north-northwest of Westwood and about 15 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, happened at 6:25 a.m.

Geophysicists say that no significant damage or casualties should be expected with earthquakes weaker than a 5.5 magnitude, though results vary by region, often depending on construction codes and types of rock that exist underground.
