LOS ANGELES, April 27 (UPI) -- Much of west Los Angeles was jiggled Friday night by a small earthquake the U.S. Geological Survey said measured at a magnitude 3.2.

The quake was centered on the coast near Marina del Rey and El Segundo but apparently was felt as far inland as La Canada Flintridge and Pasadena, the Los Angeles Times said Saturday.

There were no reports of any damage, but the Times said several people responded to the USGS' online survey saying they indeed felt the ground shake.

The newspaper noted it had been a relatively quiet seismic stretch in the Los Angeles area with no quakes of magnitude 3 or larger being recorded.
