Quake Rattles California

An earthquake with a magnitude of 4.9 rattled parts of Southern California. There were no reports of injury or damage.

The quake struck at 5:08 p.m. PST Monday and was felt as mild rolling in downtown Los Angeles and stronger rolling in San Bernardino. It was felt as far away as San Diego.

The epicenter in San Bernardino County was about four miles north of Big Bear City, said seismologists at the U.S. Geological Survey and the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.

"I'm here checking the store," said a clerk at a 7-Eleven convenience store on Big Bear Boulevard in nearby Big Bear Lake. "Everything's fine. Nothing is off the shelves."

The quake was followed by a magnitude-3.2 aftershock at 5:42 p.m. and a magnitude-3.7 at 11:16 p.m., said seismologist Sue Hough. The quake was relatively shallow, at a depth of about 3 miles.

"The building was shaking, rolling, and I just patiently waited for it to quit," said San Bernardino County Sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers. "I've checked the emergency call status board, and I don't see any reports of injuries or damage."

Big Bear City is about 90 miles east of Los Angeles.
