SOUTH EL MONTE, Calif. The biggest breaking news is coming from California. 4.5 magnitude earthquake hits Southern California. A magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck Southern California late Friday night, says The U.S. Geological Survey.

According to the US Geological Survey, a 4.5 magnitude earthquake occurred late Friday.

The agency reported that the earthquake occurred just outside South El Monte, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) around 11:40 p.m. Initial reports indicated that it was about 11 miles (18 kilometers) deep.

No damage or injuries are reported until now.

Officials warned residents to be prepared for a possible hanger.

The epicenter of the Friday night earthquake was close to the location of the 1987 Whittier Narrow earthquake, which was 5.9, tweeted seismologist Lucy Jones. The Whittier Narrow earthquake killed eight people.

The department called upon residents to be prepared for the aftershock.

The department said in a statement, “If the shaking starts: DROP, COVER, hold on,”. “When moving your head (and) neck under strong furniture or near a strong interior wall, protect yourself from windows and doors, until the hut closes.”

There were no reports of damage at Los Angeles International Airport, but crews are thoroughly investigating the airfield and terminal, Los Angeles World Airport officials said.

A news photographer near the Golden State (5) and Garden Grove (22) in Santa Ana said the move was ‘significant’.

The Los Angeles Police Department asked residents to call only for 911 emergencies.
