    4.4 earthquake awakens Southern California; no major damage or injuries reported

    Southern Californians were awakened early Tuesday to a 4.4-magnitude earthquake centered in Pico Rivera that caused no major damage or injuries but put first-responders on alert and rattled nerves.

    Residents living near the epicenter near Pico Rivera said some items fell off shelves and tables, but authorities said they have no reports of structural damage to homes. However, the quake may have caused damage to Interstate 5 in Lakewood, where two southbound lanes buckled and were closed temporarily.

    According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the temblor struck at 4:04 a.m. about 11 miles east of downtown Los Angeles and about one mile from Pico Rivera. The depth was recorded at about 11 miles. The quake was considered small, but it was felt over a large swath of Southern California.

    On the USGS website, more than 1,000 people across Southern California reported feeling the temblor.
