LOS ANGELES -- A moderate earthquake has shaken the Los Angeles area.

According to a preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Survey, the magnitude-4.4 quake was centered Tuesday night in Yorba Linda in northern Orange County, which is about 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

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

There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries.
