An earthquake with a magnitude of 3.8 struck near Santa Paula Thursday afternoon. It was likely felt as far off as the South Bay, according to reports to the U.S. Geological Survey.

(The quake was initially reported as a 3.9)

The USGS says it hit about six miles from Santa Paula and the epicenter was about 26 miles underground. The shaking was felt in nearby Ojai where, about 10 minutes later, a second, 2.6 magnitude earthquakestruck just 10 minutes later.

So far, no immediate reports of any injuries or damage from either of those quakes.
