An earthquake struck near Marina del Rey late Friday night but no damage or injuries were reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported the earthquake had a magnitude 2.7 and struck two miles east-northeast of Marina del Rey at 9:55 p.m.

A magnitude-2.7 earthquake “would only be felt (by) people right above it who were in a quiet setting,” U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones wrote on Twitter.

The earthquake was “way too small to assign to a mapped fault,” Jones wrote.

“This would have moved a fault only a few yards across,” Jones wrote.
