Its epicenter is around 45km from Los Angeles.
A 3.5 magnitude earthquake was also reported seconds later, according to FOXLA.
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.”
Californians have claimed that they felt tremors across Santa Monica.
Shockwaves have also been felt in Camarillo and Anaheim, according to NBCLA.

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.
Cops said the victims, aged 72 and 83, suffered “medical emergencies” and medics couldn’t reach them.
It left thousands of Americans in cities such as Chico and Ferndale without power.
A magnitude 3.3 earthquake also hit the state’s Bay Area in December.
The quake was recorded 1.5 miles north of Union City, the USGS said.
It came almost a year after a 6.2 magnitude quake rocked the coast of Cape Mendocino.
No injuries were recorded, according to reports at the time.
