    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – A pair of earthquakes measuring up to 4.0 on the Richter scale rattled the Los Angeles area early Monday morning, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.

    The 4.0 quake struck at 4:44 a.m. local time at the depth of 19.9 km in the Lennox area of Los Angeles County, just miles away from the international airport.

    ​That quake followed a 2.5 magnitude temblor that hit 30 minutes earlier, USGS said.

    There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries.
