#AceWorldNews – LOS ANGELES – A magnitude-5.1 earthquake centred near Los Angeles caused no major damage but jittered nerves throughout the region as dozens of aftershocks struck into the night.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck at about 9:09 p.m. Friday and was centred near Brea in Orange County – about 20 miles south-east of down-town Los Angeles – at a depth of about 5 miles.

It was felt as far south as San Diego and as far north as Ventura County, according to citizen responses collected on-line by the USGS.
