Residents in the Los Angeles area were woken up by a series of earthquakes yesterday



A swarm of earthquakes rattled the south Los Angeles County community of Lennox early Monday morning, the largest carrying a 4.0-magnitude which was felt strongly across L.A. and Orange counties.

The large earthquake occurred at 4:44 a.m., with its epicenter at Century Boulevard and Doty Avenue, just south of SoFi Stadium and north of the 105 Freeway and east of the 405 Freeway, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

It happened at a depth of 12.3 miles.

The earthquake was felt as far north as Lancaster and as far south as San Juan Capistrano.

It was preceded by a 3.3-magnitude earthquake which hit at 4:15 a.m., also in Lennox, about a half-mile from the larger quake, with the epicenter at West 104th Street and Dixon Avenue, according to the USGS.
