Federal earthquake monitors reported an earthquake six miles south of Rancho Palos Verdes today at 1 p.m.

Scientists at the United States Geological Survey made the observation today, according to their website which is devoted to monitoring earthquakes.

“We had a magnitude-4 earthquake 10 kilometers south of Rancho Palos Verdes,” said Survey spokesman Susan Garcia.

“In terms of our damage scale, weak to light, this kind of shaking is not likely to have caused any damage,” she said.

The survey logged 600 responses from people reported to have felt the quake, she said.

The quake was felt by people in 92 zip codes, she said.
