A 4.0 earthquake struck near Malibu last night, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

It wasn't a result of David Geffen rattling his saber to ensure that outsiders don't come to the public beach outside his home. Nor was it John McEnroe throwing a tantrum. It wasn't a raucous anti-Semitic festival at Mel Gibson's house, either.

According to the USGS …

… it was just an earthquake of the mild variety that happened at 10:14 p.m.

The epicenter was 30 miles south-southwest of Malibu, offshore, according to the survey.

People reported feeling it from Huntington Beach to Pasadena, Santa Clarita to Rancho Mirage.

The Los Angeles Fire Department stated that no damages or injuries were reported.

No word on whether there were any good waves.
