Did you feel it? A small earthquake rattled near Downtown Los Angeles in the witching hour last night. The 3.4 quake shook at 12:11 a.m., and was centered about a mile from Willowbrook, and about nine miles south of the Los Angeles Civic Center.

L.A. Now noted overnight:

The U.S. Geological Survey said the temblor was felt across the South Bay, Long Beach and northern Orange County. [Updated, 12:50 a.m. June 6: Residents as far north as Burbank reported feeling the temblor.]

There have been no reports of damage or injuries.
