California experienced a small earthquake Los Angeles was the general area. Early this morning, a small undersea earthquake occurred off the coast near Santa Monica and was felt by many people in West Los Angeles.

This was a great weekend for news stories about tornadoes, but let’s not forget earthquakes, eh?

The tremblor, measured at 3.6 on the Richter scale, struck around 2:17 in the morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The epicenter was approximately 4 miles off of Redondo Beach (where women love other women…) and about 8 miles deep.

Mostly it was people in oceanfront towns that felt it but some reports came in from from central Los Angeles, almost 20 miles away.

Police recorded calls from concerned citizen, but no reports of injury or damage. When it comes to earthquake Los Angeles folks go about their day soon after.
