A minor earthquake rattled Los Angeles’ San Gabriel Valley Wednesday morning.
The quake, a magnitude 2.9, struck at 8:35 a.m., according to the United States Geological Survey.
The epicenter was just north of the 10 Freeway in the area of San Gabriel, Rosemead and Alhambra, at a depth of approximately 5.5 miles.
KTLA viewer Jack Witte in Alhambra described the quake as a “strong jolt.” Residents also reported feeling the ground shake in Glendale, Huntington Park and downtown L.A.
There were no immediate reports of damage.
Tens of thousands of earthquakes are recorded in California each year but the vast majority of them are extremely minor. Only several hundred are greater than magnitude 3.0, and only about 15 to 20 are greater than magnitude 4.0, according to the USGS.
In North America, only Alaska records more quakes per year than California.
