No immediate reports of damage or injury were reported.

Asked was it likely to follow typical aftershock patterns, Hough said "We can never count on earthquakes to obey the averages" but said that they did expect an aftershock pattern, most likely peaking in the magnitude 4 range. Shaking was reported throughout a widespread part of Southern California.

Scientists at the California Institute of Technology's seismology laboratory in Pasadena, northeast of Los Angeles, said the natural disaster warning system under development for the West Coast gave about 10 seconds of warning before shaking arrived.

Sara Almeron, a worker at Manhattan Bagel in Woodland Hills, said she felt an natural disaster as she was talking to co-workers.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department was also assessing the region for damage.

The agency added that it did not expect casualties from the quake, although there was a possibility of aftershocks.

Phivolcs says that an Intensity IV quake is considered "moderately strong" with a vibration that is "felt like a passing of heavy truck" and causes hanging objects to swing considerably.

Emergency-response agencies say California residents should use Thursday's shaker as a reminder to formulate an natural disaster plan as well as the importance of having an quake kit ready and available.

Renowned former USGS seismologist Lucy Jones described the Tuesday afternoon temblor as a "moderate" quake, KTLA reported.

Swindle added that crews drove around to assess possible damage Thursday afternoon.

The quake did startle some across Southern California, particularly those in Los Angeles County.

"We live in quake country", Kondo said. "We know that it's coming", Swindle said.

Leonard said it was "pretty scary" and couldn't help but wonder whether it was going to be a "little tremor" or "the Big One that they're always talking about". Stay with ABC7 News for the latest details on this developing story.
