OAK HILLS — A mild temblor awoke Victor Valley residents early Friday morning, though there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports the earthquake, registering a magnitude 3.5, was centered about 8 miles southwest of Oak Hills at 6:35 a.m. Friday. The quake occurred along the San Andreas Fault at a depth of about 7 miles below the surface. Media outlets reported that residents from all over the Inland Empire and other Southern California communities felt the quake.
There were a few small aftershocks, including a 2.5-magnitude jolt at 1:31 p.m., according to the USGS.
According to Facebook users commenting on the Daily Press page, many across the region felt the jolt while others didn’t at all.
Spring Valley Lake resident Helena Elizabeth said on Facebook the date of the day gave her cause for concern.
“For sure felt it in SVL! Was too tired to get out of bed though,” Elizabeth wrote. “First thing I thought: Welcome to Friday the 13th!! Then went back to snoring...Lol.”
Rhonda Warren Wilson, meanwhile, was unfazed by the quake.
“I was up getting ready for work, in Hesperia, didn't feel or hear a thing,” Wilson wrote.
Kathryne Licari was near the epicenter and seemed to enjoy the rattle.
“Laying in bed and felt it, got excited and had a big smile on my face,” Licari wrote on the Daily Press Facebook page. “I love them!!”
There were no reports of damage to local property or injuries to Victor Valley residents or commuters.
