LOS ANGELES (AP) — A moderate earthquake gave a late-night jolt to the Los Angeles area, but no damages or injuries were reported.

Seismologist Nick Sheckel from the California Institute of Technology says the quake hit at 11:23 p.m. Tuesday and was centered two miles east of Yorba Linda in northern Orange County, which is about 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

The quick shock of the quake was widely felt throughout the region. A survey report says a 2.7-magnitude aftershock followed less than a minute later.

Police and fire officials in Orange and Los Angeles counties say they have received no reports of damage or injuries.
