PACOIMA, Calif. – Some folks woke up to a slight jolt in Pacoima, Calif., a suburb north of Los Angeles Thursday morning.
According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), a magnitude 4.2 earthquake shook the community at 4:29 a.m. (PDT) Thursday. The temblor was then followed up by a magnitude 3.3 aftershock just nine minutes later.

Fortunately, with the exception of some spooked felines and canines, no injuries or damage have been reported.
