Magnitude 4.1 earthquake rattles Californian homes


LOS ANGELES — A moderate earthquake rattled Southern California on Saturday morning, shaking homes across the Inland Empire region and causing buildings to sway in downtown Los Angeles.

The magnitude 4.1 quake struck at 8:07 a.m. (1507 GMT). The U.S. Geological Survey said it was centered along the San Andreas Fault about two miles (three kilometers) northwest of Devore, in San Bernardino County. The epicenter was approximately where the San Andreas Fault crosses the San Gabriel and San Bernardino mountain ranges. Some buildings swayed in downtown Los Angeles, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) to the west.

A San Bernardino County Sheriff’s dispatcher said the Rancho Cucamonga station shook for a few seconds, but there were no calls about damage or injuries.
