Offshore magnitude-4.1 quake strikes off Malibu
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.

Brandon David Wilson, a school teacher who lives in the Culver City area, said on his Twitter account that he felt the earthquake, but it was "just a sharp jolt. No big whoop."
