An quake of magnitude 6.2 struck off the southern Philippine island of Mindanao on Thursday, the US Geological Survey said.

The temblor struck around 12:29 p.m. PT around 39 miles southwest of Oxnard, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Officials at the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management said they had not yet received any reports of damage from emergency responders.

The Tsunami Warning Center stated that there is no tsunami danger at this time, according to a Tweet from the USGS.

More on this as it develops.

According to the department, during quake mode, firefighters from all 106 neighborhood fire stations survey all 470 square miles in the greater Los Angeles area.

"That's part of life in Southern California", Jones said.

Los Angeles police also made checks of "infrastructure and critical locations". Fire officials in Ventura County, close to the epicentre of the quake, also reported no damage from the natural disaster.

LA's National Weather Service has said there are no tsunami warnings in place as of yet. In other words, the rate of a magnitude 8.0 or greater natural disaster is once per 494 years.

Some people in the Los Angeles area received about a 10-second warning before the shaking hit thanks to the state's quake early warning system, according to seismologists at the California Institute of Technology.

"Year of a disaster is unknown, but impacts are very predictable", said seismologist Jones.

Officials at the Orange County Fire Authority were not aware of any earthquake-related damage in the area it serves.
