You probably didn't feel it, but if you did, you weren't dreaming it. A magnitude 2.4 microearthquake struck 11 miles southwest of downtown in the Hawthorne-Lennox area at 2:41 a.m. There have been no reports of damage or injuries, just a bunch of people on Twitter freaking out. These little shakers happen everyday and are nothing to worry about. However, they are a good reminder to get prepared.
