An earthquake fault caused the death of 120 people during the Long Beach earthquake in 1933. 52 people died in Long Beach and 17 people in Compton.

The danger of the error is that it runs under many California cities and can cause significant destruction with an earthquake of a sufficient size.

The USGS said the quake saw houses in Compton shake on Friday morning, along with houses in Lynwood, Gardena, Willowbrook, Lakewood, and northern Long Beach.

Less intense shaking happened in the Los Angeles Basin and the San Gabriel Valley.

Houses shuddered in Burbank and Rowland Heights.

The earthquake was not strong enough on Friday to cause serious damage or risk to people.
