LOS ANGELES (AP) – Seismologists now say the earthquake that rolled across Los Angeles before dawn was magnitude 4.4.
The 6:25 a.m. Monday temblor was initially estimated at 4.7.
The quake was centered 15 miles west-northwest of the downtown civic center and occurred at a depth of about 5 miles.
The Los Angeles Fire Department has received no immediate reports of damage.
The quake follows a 6.2-magnitude earthquake on Chile’s northern Pacific shore just hours after a stronger 6.7-magnitude quake hit the same region.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports that this latest quake hit late Sunday night, or at 0511 GMT.
The USGS report says the earthquake occurred offshore at a depth of 6.6 miles (10.6 milometers). Its epicenter was 46 miles northwest of Iquique, Chile.
