There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. While there are many variables involved, geologists say damage does not usually occur until the earthquake magnitude reaches somewhere above 4 or 5.

Southland earthquake expert Lucy Jones wrote on Twitter that the quake was "quite deep at 14 km," but said it was "probably felt around much of LA basin."

According to USGS's "Did you feel it?" map, people felt the quake in South Gate, Downey, Long Beach, Gardena and Los Angeles, but only at weak to mild intensity.
