"Everyone residing in Southern California lives with the possibility of an earthquake each and every day.
"Thankfully, there are no serious injuries or damages to report in the LA area. Our children, schools, offices and highways are safe. Our emergency response personnel have acted swiftly and effectively. Our City and region have emerged relatively unscathed.
"This earthquake should serve as a wakeup call to all of Los Angeles' and Southern California's families. Now is the time for parents to talk to their children about safety and preparedness, and to develop a plan of action in the event of any emergency.
"The City's leaders are here to serve all residents and respond to every incident. We ask for your cooperation and calm as we respond to today's events."
