3.0-Magnitude Quake Hits Magic Mountain Area

VAL VERDE, Calif. -- A 3.0-magnitude earthquake hit the Magic Mountain area Saturday and appeared to go unnoticed, officials said.

The epicenter of the 9:17 a.m. shaker was an estimated 3 miles east of Piru, about six miles west of Stevenson Ranch, and about 37 miles northwest of the Los Angeles Civic Center. It occurred at a depth of three miles.

A check with several businesses in Castaic Junction and Val Verde found no one who felt it. The sheriff's office in nearby Santa Clarita reported it got no calls.
