Another earthquake rattles S. California

The temblor was considered relatively shallow with a depth of 5.6 miles, the USGS said.

Residents of southern California were rattled by a 4.1 magnitude earthquake, the largest of more than 100 aftershocks following Friday's 5.1 rumbler that caused light scattered damage around the Los Angeles area.

Today's quake rippled through an area near Rowland Heights, California, about 2:32 p.m., according to the US Geological Survey. The temblor was considered relatively shallow with a depth of 5.6 miles, the USGS said.

Aftershocks are expected following earthquakes, according to the USGS. Seismologists said there was about a 5 percent chance that Friday's quake, which struck at 9:09 pm (5:00 pm local time), was a foreshock to a bigger temblor.

No injuries were immediately reported from either today's quake or the more significant earthquake that struck Friday evening outside La Habra, California, which is about 20 miles (32 km) east of downtown Los Angeles.
