A massive natural disaster of magnitude 6.2 on the Richter scale has struck off the southern Philippine island of Mindanao on Thursday, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).
The quake, which struck about 86 miles from Los Angeles around 12:30 p.m., registered a magnitude of 5.3, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
There have been no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
The Los Angeles Fire Department is now surveying the Los Angeles area for any damages or injuries, Chief Ralph Terrazas said in a Twitter post. LAFD officials said firefighters found no damage during the survey, which was done in the air and on the ground, and no injuries were reported. Five of the islands are part of Channel Islands National Park - San Miguel, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz, Anacapa, and Santa Barbara islands.
The island is largely unpopulated but does have some research facilities, historic buildings and hosts campers.
As California lies on the San Andreas Fault, the state is frequently hit with earthquakes, some more powerful than others depending on the amount of built-up pressure along the tectonic plates.
The strongest shaking was felt near the coast, including Oxnard, Port Hueneme and Santa Barbara.
