-

A magnitude 3.6 earthquake struck close to Los Angeles at around 7:01 a.m. Sunday, as per the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake happened around one mile from Boyle Heights, 1.5 miles from East Los Angeles and a little more than two miles from the communities of Maywood and Commerce, as per the USGS.

The USGS at first announced the magnitude as 3.9 and the depth of the quake as 10.6 miles, and later changed the figures to magnitude 3.6 and a depth of 10.7 miles.

The depth at which the earthquake happened decreased how broadly it was felt. There were no prompt reports of harm.

As per the USGS reports, the shake was felt from Santa Clarita to Orange County.

“What you feel in a little earthquake like earlier today relies upon the fact that you are so near it. Since it is 10 miles down, everybody is no less than 10 miles from it. The nearer you are, the more keen the motion,” earthquake expert Lucy Jones said on Twitter.

An average of five earthquakes with magnitudes somewhere in the range of 3.0 and 4.0 happen each year in the more noteworthy Los Angeles region, as per a new three-year data sample.
