A preliminary 3.3-magnitude earthquake struck near Baldwin Hills Saturday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The 6-mile-deep quake hit shortly after 10 a.m. and the epicenter was in Windsor Hills, just 1 mile southeast of Baldwin Hills. There have been no reports of damage.

Residents in Hollywood, Hawthorne, Paramount, Brentwood, Ladera Heights, Manhattan Beach, Beverly Hills, Inglewood and Torrance reported feeling a quick shake.

The jolt is one of several in a little more than a month that has hit the Newport-Inglewood fault. A 3.9-magnitude earthquake struck the same area on May 3 around 4 a.m. Two other temblors rattled the area in April.

The Los Angeles Fire Department tweeted that it would not go into earthquake mode following the quake.
