The quake appeared to spook a bunch of eagles in a nest sitting in a tree over the Channel Islands, KABC noted.

USGS reported the quake occurred approximately 17.4 miles southwest of Santa Cruz Island, California at 12:29 p.m. "We know that it's coming", Swindle said.

Isla Vista experienced a 5.3 magnitude quake on Thursday afternoon, according to United States Geological Services (USGS).

Scientists at the California Institute of Technology's seismology laboratory in Pasadena said the natural disaster warning system under development for the West Coast gave about 10 seconds of warning before shaking arrived.

"It's a regular sort of natural disaster that we expect somewhere in Southern California", Jones told KTLA.

"Earthquakes are not at all predictable".

However, experts said following the quake that there's a 1-in-20 chance a larger one will strike in the next few weeks, per the LA Times.

An early warning system did alert residents in Los Angeles before the shaking was felt, Caltech confirms.




"Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Ralph Terrazas explained the section wasldquo;earthquake mode", which he included was routine protocol.

"We now have no reports of damage or injuries", fire department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.

Officials took this opportunity to urge residents to make a communications plan if they don't have one already and to check if they have emergency supplies on hand. It struck near the Channel Islands, about 40 miles from Oxnard, Calif.

Some bricks fell from a chimney at an 1860s ranch on Santa Cruz Island, but no one was hurt, said Yvonne Menard, spokeswoman for Channel Islands National Park.

The shaking caused landslides on Santa Cruz Island, which was close to the epicenter.

On social media, people across the Southern California region reported feeling the quake, with many describing it as "rolling".

Authorities in Los Angeles and Ventura counties did not report any immediate damage.
