A magnitude-4.1 earthquake struck near Yorba Linda Wednesday in the wake of a magnitude-4.4 shaker recorded about 10 hours earlier.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 9:33 a.m. quake was centered about two miles north-northeast of Yorba Linda. It followed a magnitude-1.2 temblor recorded at 3:06 a.m. in the same general area. No major problems were reported, according to the Orange County Fire Authority.
People near the epicenter described it as a short jolt that rattled windows but caused no immediate damage.
The temblor was felt in downtown Los Angeles, where the Los Angeles Fire Department went into “earthquake emergency mode,” fire department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.
“No significant damage or injuries were reported,” Humphrey said.
At 11:23 p.m. Tuesday, a magnitude-4.4 jolt occurred in the same area.
