That's twice in a day (but honestly, there's nothing unusual about this). A small 3.7 magnitude earthquake struck the Santa Monica Bay at 4:59 p.m., according to the USGS. It was followed two smaller ones nearby: a 1.9 quake at 5:13 p.m. and a 2.8 at 5:17 p.m. Earlier, a 3.6 rattled the same area at 2:17 a.m. Did you feel it?
