A 3.7-magnitude San Jacinto earthquake shook up residents in California's Riverside County Tuesday night, with tremors felt as far away as parts of Orange County and Palm Desert.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake hit at 7:38 p.m. PST and was followed by a smaller, 2.9-magnitude tremor roughly an hour later. The epicenter of the earthquake was about one mile north-northwest of San Jacinto at a depth of eight miles.

The Press Enterprise reported no damage in Hemet, south of San Jacinto, nor in any surrounding areas. Likewise, there were no reports of any injuries.

"Did you feel the earthquake we had around 7:30 this evening centered out of San Jacinto near Hemet, man I thought the house was gonna come off the foundation," one resident wrote on the Press Enterprise's Facebook page. "Then another jolt about 30 minutes later. Wow!"

"It was really loud with a lot of shaking in Hemet," another posted.

One KFRG-FM listener said she was not terribly worried about the shaking.

"It didn't feel that bad at all, but I felt something," the Murrita, California, resident said.

Another radio listener said the earthquake made her windows pound.

"[It was] one hard shake and a couple weak shakes," she told KFRG-FM. "But boy did the windows rattle!"

Some shared their earthquake experiences on Twitter.
