A magnitude 3.6 earthquake rattled Granada Hills Tuesday night, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake struck around 11:41 p.m. at a depth of 3.7 miles about 2 miles north-northeast of Granada Hills, 3 miles from San Fernando and 6 miles from Northridge.
Thousands across the region reported feeling weak to moderate shaking to USGS, including residents in the San Fernando Valley, Oxnard, Glendale, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Anaheim, Santa Ana and parts of the Inland Empire.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said it is now in “Earthquake Mode.” All stations will conduct a pre-planned route to assess their districts for any possible damages or injuries, they said.
The Los Angeles Police Department said there were no reports of any damage or injuries in the area as of 12 a.m.
3. A M3 happens many miles below the surface on a fault a few meters across. No way to connect them with any mapped fault.
4. Foreshocks look like any other quake. We only know it's a foreshock when something bigger happens. Then I can wake up.
