A 1.5 magnitude earthquake shook in the Santa Susana Mountains, north of Granada Hills, Porter Ranch and Chatsworth, this morning. The 9:41 a.m. shaker is considered a microquake and is usually only felt by those extremely close to the epicenter. Another quake, measuring the same size, was reported in Claremont last night at 7:08 p.m.
