YORBA LINDA, Calif. -- An earthquake shook the greater Los Angeles area around 12:33 p.m eastern time Wednesday.
It was the latest of several moderate earthquakes that have shaken a wide area of Southern California.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 9:33 a.m. Pacific time Wednesday quake was centered two miles northeast of the Orange County city of Yorba Linda.
The quake was initially measured at magnitude-4.5 but seismologists have since lowered the magnitude to 4.1.
A magnitude 4.4 quake centered in the same area struck late Tuesday night. It was followed a minute later by a magnitude 2.7 aftershock. No damage was reported.
10News has received e-mails and tweets from North County residents who said they felt the quakes in the area.
Yorba Linda is about 80 miles northeast of San Marcos.
