Magnitude-3.3 earthquake strikes Los Angeles for third time in 10 days and leaves another 4.0 temblor in its wake

A MAGNITUDE 4.0 earthquake struck Los Angeles early this morning, serving as the third in 10 days.

The huge earthquake was initially reported just before 5am local time on Monday morning.

The quake came less than half an hour after a smaller 3.3 temblor hit in the same area of Inglewood.

According to the US Geological Survey, the smaller shake could be felt cross Southern California also.

Earthquake expert Dr Lucy Jones said that the quakes were "felt by most people awake in LA,," adding that it was "very deep" – about 20 kilometres.

She later warned people of the potential aftershocks, adding that they are "normal" and "can be a pretty wide range of possible behavior."

Despite the magnitude of the quakes, no damage or injuries have yet been reported.

There have been three earthquakes over a 3.0-magnitude in the area in just 10 days.

A 3.4-magnitude quake was noted in the Riverside County city of Beaumont on Sunday afternoon.

And earlier this month, on April 1, a 3.2 shake struck Huntington Park in southeast LA County.
