LOS ANGELES – A moderate earthquake shook the Los Angeles area Sunday. There were no immediate reports of any major injuries or damage.

A preliminary report by the U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-5.0 quake hit at 8:39 p.m., about 10 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles, near Inglewood.

The quake jiggled the greater Los Angeles region and was felt as far south as Long Beach.

Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department says there were no reports of any major damage.
