LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- A magnitude 3.2 earthquake hit the San Fernando Valley area just before 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to the US Geological Survey.

The quake was centered 4 miles north north-west of San Fernando at a depth of about 5 miles, according to the USGS.

A preliminary report indicated that the temblor had a magnitude of 3.2, but it was later downgraded by USGS to 3.1.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The quake Wednesday night came just days after a 3.5-magnitude earthquake rocked the South Los Angeles area Sunday night.

That quake hit about 1 mile southeast of Baldwin Hills and View Park-Windsor Hills, and about 11 miles north of Torrance.

The temblor was at a depth of about 6 miles, and located near the Newport-Inglewood fault, according to USGS seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones.
