LOS ANGELES >> A small earthquake was felt across a wide swath of Los Angeles on Sunday night, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injury.

The magnitude 3.3 temblor struck at 9:17 p.m. and was centered a mile southwest of the View Park-Windsor Hills neighborhood, just north of the city of Inglewood, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The earthquake’s epicenter was about 7.3 miles below the earth’s surface. It was initially estimated as a 3.5 magnitude earthquake.

The epicenter was not far from a magnitude 2.5 earthquake that was reported at 4:35 p.m., USGS seismologist Lucy Jones said. 

Los Angeles city and county fire departments said there were no immediate reports of damage or injury.

A USGS website for citizen reports of quake intensity showed tremors were felt from Chatsworth in the San Fernando Valley to Simi Valley north of Los Angeles down to the Long Beach area.
