It was followed by a 3.5 magnitude aftershock in the same area, then 2.8 and 2.6 ones.

The Los Angeles Fire Department is conducting a survey of key infrastructure to identify any damage.

“The LAFD is now in earthquake mode. All 106 neighborhood fire stations will conduct a strategic survey of their districts, examining all major areas of concern (transportation infrastructures, large places of assemblages, apartment buildings, power-lines, etc),” it said. “This survey will be conducted from the ground, air and sea.”

There were no immediate reports of damage.

The National Weather Service also said there was no tsunami threat.
