The quake was followed by a 3.5 magnitude aftershock at 2:03 a.m.

There were no reports of damage or injuries.

The temblor, which was felt widely across Southern California, prompted the Los Angeles Fire Department to go into Earthquake Mode, which involved a strategic survey of all major “areas of concern,” LAFD said.

“Your LAFD completed a strategic 470 square-mile survey of the City of Los Angeles following the 4.2M earthquake near Malibu. No damage or injuries were reported and normal operational mode has resumed,” LAFD announced at 2:45 a.m.

No tsunami warning was issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
