Seismologists say a 3.1-magnitude earthquake centered in the Pacific Ocean approximately four miles west of Hermosa Beach shook up the cities of Santa Monica Bay at 8:52 a.m. this morning, reports the USGS. No injuries or damages have been reported. Did you feel it? For context, that puts the quake 5 miles from Manhattan Beach, 6 miles from Redondo Beach, 8 miles from Torrance and 19 miles from the Los Angeles Civic Center.
