Preliminary reports from the USGS indicate another 4.1 magnitude earthquake has shook near Yorba Linda. Like the one that struck Tuesday night at 11:23 p.m., this one was centered 2 miles from the OC city.

While initially reported as a 4.5-magnitutde, the quake was downgraded a few minutes later after it hit at 9:33 a.m. to a 4.1.

Our readers report feeling the temblor in South Pasadena, Northridge, Downtown, Mt. Washington, Los Feliz, San Pedro, Glendale, Santa Monica, and by LAX.

No word yet from authorities about reports of damage or injuries.
