Southern Calif. shakes from another earthquake
YORBA LINDA, Calif. — Another moderate earthquake has shaken a wide area of Southern California.

The quake was initially measured at magnitude-4.5 but seismologists have since lowered the magnitude to 4.1.
A magnitude 4.4 quake centered in the same area struck late Tuesday night. No damage was reported.
Yorba Linda is about 35 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.
