A preliminary 3.6 magnitude quake struck the Westwood Village area on Monday night, according to the USGS.
According to Geonet, the quake hit at 1.43 p.m., 585 km south-west of Invercargill at a depth of 12 km. Shaking was also felt in Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Glendale.
New Zealand has been rocked by a 6.1 magnitude natural disaster which struck southwest of Invercargill, followed by a 5.1 magnitude quake northeast of Seddon.
Be that as it may, not every person felt the quake - some in Westwood rested through the natural disaster. "Any severe damage would be pretty unlikely".
The government research group defines intensity 5 shaking as moderate, or "felt by almost everyone; many awakened. Unstable objects overturned. Pendulum clocks may stop".
There were no reports of damages, according to San Benito County's Office of Emergency Services.
Intensity 4 shaking, or light shaking, can awaken residents, shake dishes, and cause walls, widows and doors to make a crackling sound. The last notable natural disaster in the general Westwood region was a 4.4 magnitude temblor that struck in 2014.
