Earthquake jolts southern California
Everyone in California asleep?
A moderate 5.0-magnitude earthquake has rattled southern California but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage, officials said.
The quake was centred near San Bernadino, some 88 kilometres east of Los Angeles at a depth of 13.8 kilometres, the United States Geological Survey said.
The quake was felt across the region, shuddering buildings across Los Angeles, witnesses said.
The temblor came roughly six months after a 5.4 earthquake jolted Los Angeles in July, the most powerful seismic shock to rock the city in 14 years
