Moderate Quake Strikes SoCal

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A moderate earthquake has rattled Southern California.

A preliminary reading by the U.S. Geological Survey shows a 4.5-magnitude quake struck Thursday night about one mile south of San Bernardino, a city of about 200,000 people. The USGS initially reported it at 4.9, then 5.0.

The shaking was felt 55 miles to the west in Los Angeles and south in Orange County.

San Bernardino County Fire Supervisor Tim Franke says he felt "a little roll and big jolt, then a sonic boom kind of noise."

San Bernardino police, Orange County and Los Angeles County sheriff's officials also say they've had no reports of damage or injuries.
