Two earthquakes in a minute rock California

Celebrities and residents said they felt the ground move beneath their feet at around 10am (GMT).

It has been measured at around a 4.2 magnitude, according to United States Geological Survey.

Just a few minutes later a second ‘big jolt’ was felt by those in the US.

The second one was measured at 3.5 magnitude, it was reported.

The epicenter is believed to be around 45km from Los Angeles.

Americans have taken to social media to say that felt the impact of the quake.

One said: ‘Did you feel that! I am West Hollywood and it shook the apartment.’

Another commented: ‘Earthquake? Brief jolt, felt in East LA area.’

A tsunami warning hasn’t been issued following the earthquake.

The quake comes just weeks after a 6.4 magnitude quake rocked parts of northern California.

At least two people were killed and several were left injured.
