A 4.4-magnitude earthquake shook California on Monday morning, waking several Olympic sports athletes.
It centered in west Los Angeles and impacted a widespread area of Southern California, but there were no early reports of significant damage, according to NBC Los Angeles.

The quake, initially measured at 4.7, was reported at 6:26 a.m. and centered about five miles northwest of Westwood, according to the report.

Many Olympic sports athletes train in Southern California. Olympic ice dance champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White are in the area for “Dancing with the Stars,” whose season debut is Monday night.
