Northridge Quake Aftershock Recorded

September 13, 2003|From Times Staff Reports

A small earthquake hit an area about five miles north-northwest of Simi Valley late Friday afternoon.

The 5:59 p.m. quake, which registered at a magnitude of 3.4, was an aftershock of the 1994 Northridge earthquake, said Joe Franck, a seismologist at Caltech.

Simi Valley police said they barely felt the aftershock, and received no calls regarding the tremor.

"Whatever it was, it certainly didn't rank up there with the big-time earthquakes," Simi Valley Lt. Neil Rein said.
