(LOS ANGELES) — A 4.4-magnitude earthquake shook southern California on Tuesday night, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The Los Angeles Fire Department sent out fire engines from its 106 fire stations, even though the city was close to 50 miles away from the earthquake’s epicenter.

Despite no immediate reports of injuries or damage, residents in affected areas said they still felt the quake. A woman named Teresa living near Devore, California told ABC News she opened her front door and “it got really rocky and very loud.”

“I stood holding onto the door knob and just looked around me to see if anything else was going to fall or cave in,” she said to ABC News.
