A 3.5-magnitude earthquake in the South Pasadena area shook parts of Southern California on Sunday morning, June 2, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The quake, at 9:56 a.m., was centered 2.3 miles south southwest of Pasadena, 2.4 miles west southwest of Alhambra, and 3 miles west northwest of Monterey Park, according to the USGS.

She added, “The focal mechanism shows east-west thrust faulting, much like the 1987 Whittier Narrows quake. (Sunday’s) quake is west of that event.”

A thrust fault is a break in the Earth’s crust, with older rocks pushed above younger rocks.

No injuries or damage were immediately reported.
