Update: 5 Aftershocks Follow Newhall Quake

Five small aftershocks followed a 3.9-magnitude earthquake that struck east of Newhall Sunday morning and was felt as far away as West Los Angeles. Did you feel it?

A 3.9-magnitude earthquake struck about four miles east of Newhall at approximately 8:24 a.m. Sunday, according to the Southern California Earthquake Center.

Soon after the quake, a series of five aftershocks under magnitude 2.5 struck until 9:27 a.m., the Los Angeles Times reported. 

The small quake was felt as far away as West Los Angeles, City News Service reported.

The Los Angeles City and County fire departments were in emergency mode following the quake, crews surveyed bridges and other infrastructure, but found no damage, City News Service reported.

LAFD firefighters from 106 neighborhood fire stations surveyed the department's 470 square miles of jurisdiction, said department spokesperson Brian Humphrey.

The quake was located at a depth of about 1.67 miles and registered light to weak ground shake as far south as Riverside, east to Lancaster and northwest to Oxnard, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Sunday morning's earthquake comes on the heels of aquake centered near Hemet, east of Irvine—which occurred seven hours earlier—and a 7.7-magnitude rumbler that rocked western Canada and triggered tsunami warnings Saturday night.

City News Service contributed to this report.

I live in Newhall and was laying in bed just about to get up. I felt very quick shaking for about 3 seconds. I knew that it was centered nearby because I have never felt such a quick shaker without rolls, jolts, and thunderous noise.

I live in N. Hollywood, I felt a bump and then a shake for 4 to 5 seconds. I almost run out the door.
Barbara Rosenthal October 28, 2012 at 04:54 PM
Felt more lilke 5 secs here in Northridge. Probably a reaction to the 7.7 quake in Canada. I wondered last night if we would get a shake from it. Guess we did.

Dan Patoyian October 28, 2012 at 05:23 PM

sitting at the dining room table in 91405, felt a small, short duration roller. having been thru the alaska earthquake in 1964 (pov-mile 35 old glenn hwy, n of anchorage) (now classified a 9.2) and the 94 earthquake (pov-sherman oaks) (should have been classified, in my view, in the mid-8's) here and large number of tremors in so ca and ak (in alaska, this would have been a mild tremor), i told my girlfriend, "yes, it is a tremor and about a 4". no substitute for experience, i guess.

{106 neighborhood fire stations surveyed the department's 470 square feet of jurisdiction,} That's a lot of firemen for for such a small area! Newhall must be pretty fire safe!

I Live in the Hollywood Hill near Fairfax . Heard a sound rather than a shake for a few secs.
Lynn Shepodd October 28, 2012 at 07:09 PM
Outside gardening in Hollywood Hills. No bump, no thump. Just the sounds of leaves raking.
Peter H. Brothers October 28, 2012 at 07:24 PM

It woke me up and I was rattled by it. I live on the botton floor of a three story apartment building that was once red-tagged in the big Northridge earthquake. I am also in Norhridge.
Bob Bailey October 28, 2012 at 10:55 PM

mimi October 29, 2012 at 04:30 PM
Fast asleep in a high rise in Santa Monica. Didn't feel a thing. If the kitty did, he forgot to mention it.

Personally, I'm hoping for ocean front property in Arizona soon. This waiting for the big one is tiresome.
Dupars October 29, 2012 at 08:25 PM
We felt it here in Studio City... Very small... Our eggs barely jiggled! :)
Irene Gibson October 29, 2012 at 10:27 PM
We, near the intersection of 101 and 405, definitely felt it, too
