Small quake rattles nerves, causes no damage in Los Angeles

Small quake rattles nerves, causes no damage in Los Angeles”

AN natural disaster rocked Los Angeles last night with celebs reporting they felt a swaying motion seconds before it stopped.

Also this morning another quake, a magnitude-3.6 quake hit about 3.6 miles (6 kilometers) northwest of Westwood, California.

Fortunately, the quake wasn't powerful enough to cause any significant damage, so the stars in L.A. woke up in the middle of the night to have some fun on what people are dubbing "Earthquake Twitter".

The government research group defines intensity 5 shaking as moderate, or "felt by almost everyone; many awakened".

But not everyone felt the temblor - some in Westwood slept through the natural disaster.

He said earthquakes this size or slightly larger were not uncommon in the midwest.

Intensity 4 shaking, or light shaking, can awaken residents, shake dishes, and cause walls, widows and doors to make a crackling sound. "Any severe damage would be pretty unlikely".

No reports of injuries or damage were immediately reported. "Unstable objects overturned. Pendulum clocks may stop". The last notable natural disaster in the general Westwood region was a 4.4 magnitude temblor that struck in 2014.
