Southern California residents were rocked by a series of earthquakes Thursday morning.
The first occurred at 4:30 a.m. PDT near San Fernando, waking many residents from their sleep. According to LA QuakeBot, it was 4.5 magnitude quake. Over a dozen aftershocks followed.
A 3.9 magnitude quake occurred at 6:50 a.m. centered near Pacoima, which neighbors San Fernando. Given its proximity to the first major quake, it may be a strong aftershock.
Rattled residents took to Twitter and the topics “earthquake” and “I hate it here” started trending.

About 40 minutes before the earthquake my dog sat on my chest and wouldn’t move. And he weighs 90 pounds. He was trying to warn us. Dogs, bruh. https://t.co/U8gZQOnTr4

Just realized my “earthquake kit” is a bag of Doritos and one snow boot.
