The epicenter of the earthquake, which struck at 11:20 p.m., was quite recently west of the Sepulveda Pass of the 405 Freeway in the Santa Monica Mountains.
The U.S. Land Survey’s ShakeMap said light to direct shaking — ordered as power 4 and 5, and portrayed on a guide as water and green — was felt in parts of the Westside and the San Fernando Valley, yet most likely was not sufficiently overwhelming to cause any critical harm. Shaking was likewise felt in Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Glendale.

Be that as it may, not every person felt the quake — some in Westwood rested through the earthquake.
“We get these size earthquakes reasonably much of the time,” said U.S. Geographical Survey seismologist Zachary Reeves. “Any serious harm would be truly far-fetched.”
Direct shaking — or force 5 shaking — is characterized by the USGS as “felt by about everybody; many stirred. A few dishes, windows broken. Precarious articles toppled. Pendulum timekeepers may stop.”
Light shaking, or power 4 shaking, is characterized as having a quality that can stir a few people and exasperate dishes, windows and entryways; can make dividers make a splitting sound; or give the impression of an overwhelming truck striking a building.
There were no reports of harm. It was trailed by a 2.0 extent delayed repercussion.
The last striking earthquake in the Westwood range was a 4.4 size quake that struck in 2014.
