The Huntington Beach area was shaken by two small earthquakes Sunday night and early Monday morning.

A magnitude-3.1 earthquake was reported three miles west-northwest of Huntington Beach at 3:40 a.m.

A magnitude-2.6 earthquake struck about four miles west-southwest of Huntington Beach, at about 10:44 p.m. Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

People reported on the USGS’ “Did You Feel It?” website that the earlier  quake was weak, and reported no damage.

It was felt mainly around Huntington Beach, Seal Beach and Long Beach. The reports about Monday morning’s quake were  similar, except reports of weak shaking came from an area south of Temecula in addition to the immediate vicinity.
