    A shallow, magnitude-4.4 earthquake occurred in L.A. Monday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Luckily, the city's fire and police departments had no reports of damage or injury.

    According to the USGS, the earthquake was centered two miles north of Sherman Oaks. Its epicenter was six miles from Beverly Hills, seven miles from Universal City and seven miles from Santa Monica. The tremor occurred at 6:25 a.m. PDT, and as expected, dozens of celebrities tweeted about it.

    For their West Coast broadcasts, NBC's "Today" and CBS' "This Morning" both led with news of the earthquake before segueing into coverage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Local station KABC, meanwhile, preempted "Good Morning America" to stick with local coverage of the earthquake.
