A magnitude-4.2 earthquake struck near Malibu early Wednesday morning, giving thousands of residents a rude awakening and prompting Los Angeles emergency management officials to conduct a 470-square-mile survey of the city that turned up no signs of damage or injuries.

The quake struck at 2 a.m., followed by a magnitude-3.6 aftershock at 2:03 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Two more aftershocks were reported. The first was 2.9-magnitude at 2:22 a.m. and the second was 2.8-magnitude at 2:38 a.m.
