A magnitude six quake shook a number of areas across the island of Mindanao today (Thursday, April 5).
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake struck about 35 miles southwest of Channel Island Beach.
LAFD tweeted that their stations have entered "earthquake mode", but no injuries or damage were intially reported.
The quake did startle some across Southern California, particularly those in Los Angeles County.
A webcam captured eagle chicks in the Sauces Canyon on Santa Cruz Island experiencing their first quake, according to the Institute for Wildlife Studies, which posted video on its YouTube channel. Fire officials in Ventura County, close to the epicenter of the quake, also reported no damage from the natural disaster.
During a press conference, Dr. Andrews said the off-shore quake is the strongest to hit the area since March 28, 2014, just over four years ago, when La Habra was rocked by a magnitude 5.1 shaker.
Earthquakes of such size occur about once a year in Southern California, according to veteran seismologist Lucy Jones, recently retired from the USGS.
