LA hit by natural disaster: 3.6 magnitude quake shakes Westwood

An natural disaster with a preliminary magnitude of 3.6 shook Los Angeles late Monday night, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The epicenter of the natural disaster, which struck at 11:20 p.m., was just west of the Sepulveda Pass section of the 405 Freeway in the Santa Monica Mountains. Hundreds of Southern Californians reported weak to light shaking from inland areas to the coast, according to the USGS. The last notable natural disaster in the general Westwood region was a 4.4 magnitude temblor that struck in 2014. The Los Angeles Times reported that the quake could be felt in Westside, San Fernando Valley, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, and Glendale.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a small quake in southeastern Illinois was felt across parts of Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky.

Intensity 4 shaking, or light shaking, can awaken residents, shake dishes, and cause walls, widows and doors to make a crackling sound.

There have been no reports of injuries or damage to buildings, put people living as far away as Bloomington have said they felt the quake.
