Sleeping Angelenos awoke with a jolt Monday morning after a 4.4 earthquake hit close to Westwood. According to the Los Angeles Times, the quake struck at 6:25 a.m. PST at a depth of five miles.
So far, there are no reports of injuries or damage. Nevertheless, many were shocked, scared, highly amused and even excited that an earthquake of substantial size actually hit L.A.!
