An earthquake with a magnitude of 2.9 struck beneath Beverly Hills on Sunday and was felt from West Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley, the U.S. Geological Survey reported on its Web site.

The "micro" earthquake struck at 5:28 p.m. about 2 1/2 miles below the surface. The sharp jolt lasted for a few seconds. No injuries or damage were reported, according to Los Angeles police and fire departments.

It was centered a short distance from the epicenter of a 4.2 quake that struck 1.1 miles southeast of Beverly Hills on Sept. 9.
