This marks the second time in little more than a month that the region has been hit by a small quake felt over a large area.

Seismologist Lucy Jones said on Twitter that the temblor occurred in a "complex part" of the San Andreas fault under the San Bernardino Mountains and was not far from the epicenter of a 1986 quake that measured 5.9 magnitude.

Others thought the earth tremors must have been closer to their location based on their strength.
