Offshore magnitude-4.1 quake strikes off Malibu

A small earthquake has given a jolt to the Southern California coast but there are no reports of damages or injuries.

The U.S. Geological Survey says in a preliminary report that the magnitude-4.1 quake struck in the Channel Islands region at 10:14 p.m. Tuesday.

The USGS says the earthquake was centered 30 miles southwest of Malibu, about 35 miles southeast of Oxnard and about 50 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.

Sheriff's and fire officials say there have been no calls about damages or injuries from the quake.

Brandon David Wilson, a school teacher who lives in the Culver City area, said on his Twitter account that he felt the earthquake, but it was "just a sharp jolt. No big whoop."
