The earthquake was felt as far east as Riverside, as far south as Mission Viejo and Huntington Beach, and as far west as the coastal cities of Oxnard and Santa Monica, per USGS. More than 1,536 people had reported feeling it through USGS’s “Did You Feel It?” platform as of 8:45 a.m.
Earthquakes this small cannot be positively assigned to a fault. A M3.6 moves a piece of fault a few 10s of meters across. The nearest mapped fault to this quake is the Simi fault.
