BEVERLY HILLS—A 3.9 magnitude earthquake struck the Los Angeles area on Sunday, May 3.
Residents in Beverly Hills, Inglewood, Downey, South Los Angeles, Huntington Beach, Hawthorne, and downtown Los Angeles were shaken by the quake.
The earthquake transpired at approximately 4:07 a.m. about one mile east southeast of Baldwin Hills. It had a depth of roughly 6 miles.
There were no reports of any significant damage or injuries.
Los Angeles Fire Department Spokesman Erik Scott stated, ”Any time the ground shakes in Los Angeles, the fire department goes into what we call ‘earthquake mode,’ and then they go out and survey their districts and that covers, actually in total, 470 square miles. So what these firefighters are serving is areas of concern, such as large places of assemblage whether that’s going to be Dodgers Stadium, or a university. They’ll look at transportation infrastructure, because we have 11 major freeways that run through Los Angeles.”
