Two Small Earthquakes Shake Pomona Valley

Two small but shallow earthquakes shook parts of the Pomona Valley this morning.

A magnitude-3.7 temblor struck at 4:43 a.m. at a depth of .6 miles, its epicenter 1 mile southwest of La Verne, 1 mile southeast of San Dimas and 2 miles northwest of Pomona, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. An aftershock of the same magnitude in the same location and at the same depth struck at 5:06 a.m., according to the USGS.

There were no immediate reports of damage, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. But the shaking made people take notice, notwithstanding the low magnitude.

"It felt like someone crashed into the station," a desk deputy at the sheriff's San Dimas Station said of the fist of the two shakers.
