MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - May 30, 2012 (WPVI) -- A small earthquake has given a jolt to the Southern California coast but there are no reports of damages or injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey says in a preliminary report that the magnitude-4.1 quake struck in the Channel Islands region at 10:14 p.m. Tuesday.
The USGS says the earthquake was centered 30 miles southwest of Malibu, about 35 miles southeast of Oxnard and about 50 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.
