A light earthquake rattled Southern California early Thursday morning in the latest sign of seismic activity this week along the “Ring of Fire,” but the shaking did not result in any reports of damage or injuries. The United States Geological Survey said the quake, with a magnitude of 4.0, occurred just after 2 a.m. Thursday about 31 miles southeast of Anaheim. The quake had a depth of about six miles, according to the USGS.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office told The Associated Press there have been no reports of damage or injury. Residents across the region took to Twitter in the early hours of Thursday to share what they felt. The temblor came two days after a magnitude 7.9 quake off the coast of Alaska trigged tsunami alerts for the West Coast of the U.S., and one day after a magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck off the coast of Japan.
