    The quake hit at 8:17 p.m., according to the USGS. It was centered about 8 miles from Anaheim and 28 miles from the LA Civic Center, according to updated information from the USGS.

    Initial reports from USGS placed the quake four miles underground. That figure was later updated, placing the earthquake slightly more than six miles below the surface.

    Within minutes, SoCal residents reported feeling the quake, which was described as a jolt in some areas, rolling in others.

    Mary Ann Bonder emailed NBC4 to report that she felt a "quick big jolt" in Irvine.

    "Felt it in Pomona, and it upset the dog," Kimerley Chambers wrote the NBCLA Facebook page.

    Joan Fowler Lloyd reported feeling a "mild bump" in Westminster, while residents in Anaheim reported more significant shaking.

    "A big jolt, then a slow rolling/rocking for about 45 to 60 seconds," @Mr_Violent_Light tweeted.
