Three days earlier, a 2.4-magnitude earthquake shook Inglewood southwest of Los Angeles. The 4.5-mile deep quake hit near Windsor Park, according to USGS.
More than 150 people from as far away as Carson and Pasadena reported feeling that tremor to the agency.
Magnitude measures the energy released at the source of the earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey says. It replaces the old Richter scale.
Quakes between 2.5 and 5.4 magnitude are often felt but rarely cause much damage, according to Michigan Tech.
