Minor Quake Rattles Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Officials say a small earthquake was felt around Los Angeles early Monday but there were no reports of any injuries or damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 3.4 earthquake struck shortly after midnight and was centered about 10 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, near Willowbrook.

There were no reports of any major damage or injuries.

A USGS website that records responses from people feeling quakes logged hundreds of hits from the Los Angeles metropolitan area.
