HESPERIA (AP) — A small earthquake rattled the high desert area east of Los Angeles on Monday.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 3.4 quake struck shortly before 5 p.m. and was centered about eight miles east of Hesperia.

San Bernardino sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman says there have been no reports of any injuries or damages.

Hesperia is about 75 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
