Earthquake of magnitude 6.2 strikes off Mindanao in Philippines, reports USGS

A 5.3 magnitude natural disaster struck off the coast of Southern California, near the Channel Islands, on April 5, 2018.

A USGS map shows the location of a magnitude 5.3 quake that struck off the Channel Islands around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, April 5, 2018.

The Los Angeles Fire Department is now surveying the Los Angeles area for any damages or injuries, Chief Ralph Terrazas said in a Twitter post.

There are not any reports of damage.

Jones, formerly of the USGS, described it as a "moderate"-size natural disaster".

A strong natural disaster struck the Channel Islands region on Thursday afternoon and rattled much of Southern California.

People living in areas such as Tarzana, San Dimas, Long Beach, Pomona and Torrance reported shaking, with a number of residents taking to Twitter when the quake happened.

A CalTech seismologist wasn't surprised Santa Clarita residents felt the quake in our area, considering it was a slightly larger than average quake, said Dr. Susan Hough, USGS seismologist.

According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), the natural disaster hit at 11:53 a.m.

The quake was more than three miles deep. That quake was a 5.1.

"There's a much higher chance of (smaller) aftershocks", she said.
