Magnitude 3.7 Earthquake Strikes Near Inglewood

Residents in Southern California were jolted awake just after midnight after an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.7 rocked parts of the region.

There were no immediate reports of any damage or injuries.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake was centered near the unincorporated View Park-Windsor Hills area, near Inglewood and struck at 12:03 a.m. at a depth of just over 7 miles. The quake was initially reported as a magnitude 3.8 by the USGS until it was slightly downgraded later this morning.

"A 3.8 earthquake shook the L.A. area tonight shortly after midnight. Our @LAFD has activated to conduct its routine survey of the city to assess for any damages. City teams will continue to monitor," Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted about 12:25 a.m.

A citywide survey to assess any damage related to the quake did not find any, the LAFD said.

The quake was also felt at Los Angeles International Airport, but there were no immediate reports of any damage or injuries. Operations at the airport were not affected, an airport official said.
