No damage is being reported after a minor quake rattled northern Alabama.

The quake was felt at downtown police headquarters in Los Angeles and in Glendale, Lakewood, other parts of Los Angeles County and Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties, CBS News reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 2.1 natural disaster happened around 7:22 a.m. Monday about 15 miles north of Huntsville near the Tennessee state line.

That depth - relatively shallow - is what allowed the quake to be felt across the region, according to natural disaster expert Lucy Jones.

And residents who live near the epicenter said the quake packed a punch. One minute later, a second preliminary 3.4 quake was reported in the same area.

Vickie Carillo and her son were sitting on the couch of their La Verne home, watching "Jaws 2", when the quake struck. Her family picked up their two Jack Russell terriers and ran outside, where they joined about a dozen neighbors.

"It shook so violent here in Rancho Cucamonga", Lorraine Davila said.

'It was moving the whole house, ' he told the Times. "And then it just another shook". It was really loud too, kind of like thunder.

The temblor made the water slosh in his swimming pool, Flores added.
