    A red dot marks where a 2.8-magnitude quake hit 2 miles southeast of Marina del Rey on Sunday, April 28, 2013. It was the second shallow temblor to strike the same area in two days.

    An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 2.8 struck near Marina del Rey Sunday evening, two days after a slightly larger quake rattled the same area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

    The quake was centered about 2 miles southeast of Marina del Rey and 2 miles north of El Segundo, according to USGS. It was about 7.5 miles deep and hit at 8:06 p.m.

    Already shaken by a 3.8-magnitude temblor that struck in the same area and about the same time on April 26, residents from as far away as La Mirada (40 miles), Long Beach (34 miles), Downey (28 miles) and Torrance (21 miles) reported feeling the shallow quake.

    The temblor was also felt in West Hollywood, Culver City and Downtown Los Angeles.

    There were no initial reports of damage or injury.
