ROSEMEAD (CNS) – An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.6 struck two miles south of Rosemead tonight and was felt across a large portion of Southern California.
The quake struck at 11:38 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was in almost the same location as the magnitude 5.9 Whittier Narrows earthquake in 1987, according to famed seismologist Lucy Jones.
Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Ralph Terrazas tweeted that the department “is in Earthquake Mode, with all 106 Neighborhood Fire Stations checking their areas for damage.”
There were no immediate reports of damage at Los Angeles International Airport, but crews are thoroughly checking the airfield and terminal, according to Los Angeles World Airports.
