A 3.9 earthquake struck outside the Malibu area between Leo Carillo State Beach and Port Hueneme at 8:19 p.m. The U.S. Geogolical Survey considers a quake with this magnitude minor. As LAist reader Doran B. on Twitter noted, "Below 4 on the Richter scale, it's difficult for me to distinguish between an earthquake and indigestion."
