A magnitude 3.6-3.8 earthquake hit the Greater Los Angeles Area, California in the late hours of April 22nd. The first shakes were felt about 1 mile south of View Park-Windsor Hills at midnight, Newsweek reports.

European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre currently lists the earthquake’s depth as 10 km (6 miles), with level IV on the Macroseismic Intensity scale, which means “largely observed” effects.

Many L.A. residents were startled by the tremors, reporting blinking lights, vibrating walls and shaking furniture.

Mayor Eric Garcetti already posted an update on his Twitter account: “A 3.8 earthquake shook the L.A. area tonight shortly after midnight. Our @LAFD has activated to conduct its routine survey of the city to assess for any damages. City teams will continue to monitor.”
