A magnitude 3.6 earthquake centered in Granada Hills struck at 11:41 p.m. Tuesday, causing light shaking throughout the San Fernando Valley and weaker shaking elsewhere in the L.A. area. Besides the Valley, shaking could be felt in Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, the Hollywood Hills, downtown L.A., the San Gabriel Valley, Santa Clarita and Ventura County. The epicenter of the earthquake was in the area of the Van Norman Lakes Reservoir, near the intersection of the 405, 5 and 118 freeways. AdvertisementMany earthquake faults lie underneath this part of the L.A. region, such as strands of the Sierra Madre fault zone. Even if you didn’t feel this small earthquake, you never know when the “big one” is going to strike.
