Earthquake in San Bernardino shakes Southland, reportedly rattles DTLA
As several large earthquakes shook the Pacific Rim region this week, a magnitude 4.3 earthquake struck Southern California early Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
No damage or injuries resulted from the quake that struck just before 2:30 a.m. about 3 miles below ground.
The earthquake’s epicenter was in the Mojave Desert community of Trona in San Bernardino County.
Significant seismic activity has been reported around the Pacific region this week.
On Thursday a magnitude 7.2 earthquake rattled southern Peru and parts of Bolivia, and a 6.2 quake shook the island nation East Timor, also known as Timor-Leste, according to the USGS.
A magnitude 5.5 earthquake hit southern Mexico on Wednesday, centered in the state of Oaxaca, ABC news reported.
Via Twitter a CBS meteorologist and many other people on social media noted shaking from the Trona quake was felt as far away from the epicenter as downtown Los Angeles.
“Damage has not been reported with this earthquake, but this is a significant size quake for California,” meteorologist Zach Covey tweeted.
Several earthquakes have shaken the Los Angeles area in recent months, with epicenters throughout LA County.
The most intense earthquake in California in the last 20 years hit Trona in 2019. That quake’s magnitude was 7.1.
