On Tuesday night, a major earthquake struck California. The 4.4 magnitude earthquake hit north of La Verne and residents from Ventura County to the San Fernando Valley could feel the shake.

According to ABC, the earthquake struck at around 7:30 p.m. local time. Residents from Beverly Hills, Glendale, Inglewood, West Covina, Fontana, Ontario, Montclair, Irvine, the San Gabriel Valley, and parts of the San Fernando Valley all said that they felt the effects.

Reportedly, the depth of the earthquake was around 3.7 miles. Shortly after the first 4.4 magnitude quake, a 3.4 magnitude aftershock was felt.

According to CBS News, the earthquake caused buildings in downtown Los Angeles to shake for several seconds. Additionally, some people 40 miles away from the epicenter reported feeling the impact.

As of Wednesday morning, no damage has been reported. However, hundreds of residents took to social media to talk about the experience. Below are some of the posts:

Thankfully, this was a relatively minor earthquake! Although it was felt for miles, it didn't cause any damage! In other recent news, please be praying for the pastor, husband, and father of 3 who sadly took his life after a battle with depression.
