Lamps swayed and windows rattled after a 6.6 earthquake centered in the Mojave Desert near Ridgecrest was felt about 150 miles away across the Eastside neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in the Los Angeles area following the quake, which struck at about 10:30 am.
But the L.A. Fire Department entered "earthquake mode" as crews from 106 fire stations surveyed their districts.
Here is what people were saying on Twitter about their 4th of July quake experience:
