A 2.7-magnitude earthquake stuck Fontana on Monday night in Southern California, according to reports. About an hour later, a 2.6-magnitude earthquake hit near Fontana again.

Residents near Riverside, and in other parts of San Bernardino County said they could feel both. They were felt as far away as Los Angeles.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the first quake hit at 9:59 p.m. local time. The second quake struck at about 10:48 p.m. local time, said the USGS.

The first earthquake was located 2 miles from Fontana, 2 miles from Rialto, 3 miles from Bloomington, and 4 miles from Muscoy. It had a depth of 2.3 miles.

The second quake was located in nearly the exact same location with a depth of 2.2 miles.

On Twitter, many said they could feel the two earthquakes.

“I felt the earthquake and then looked at the tv in my room that broke from the last earthquake. Mother Nature got jokes,” tweeted one.

Added another, “So that waaaas an earthquake lol.”

Tweeted one, “Who needs to even feel an earthquake these days, just let twitter notify you.”
