2020 Earth Day started with an earthquake in the United States as a magnitude 3.7 earthquake centered near Windsor Hills and Baldwin Hills shook Southern California around 12:03 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The temblor was reportedly widely felt across Southern California, with Los Angeles International Airport tweeting that it was felt at the airport, but LAX reported no damage.

Also residents from Santa Monica, West LA and West Hollywood, up to Koreatown and Burbank and east to Whittier and Bellflower, along with Torrance in the South Bay, reported felt the jolt.

According to NBC Los Angeles, more than 15,000 people responded to the USGS’s Did You Feel It website, reporting feeling the earthquake. The Earth Day earthquake measured about 7.4 miles (11.9 km) in depth, the USGS said.

TV Host and John Legends wife, Chrissy Teigen was one of the first celebrities who took to Twitter to comment on the quake, as did many other Angelenos.
