(RNN) – A strong 4.4 magnitude earthquake felt across Los Angeles has been reported Monday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake struck about 6:30 a.m. and was five miles deep.

There are no reports of any damage or injuries at this time.

According to the USGS, the epicenter was six miles from Beverly Hills, seven miles from Universal City and seven miles from Santa Monica.

A magnitude 3.4 earthquake was reported Sunday afternoon near Pine Valley, CA, according to the USGS. The temblor occurred at 2:55 p.m. PT at a depth of .6 miles.

Pine Valley, CA, is about 2.5 hours away from Los Angeles.

The LAPD tweeted asking residents not to call 911 to report an earthquake.

A 6.7 magnitude temblor rattled the northwest of Inquique, Chile on late Sunday night, according to the Huffington Post.

Hours later, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake hit the same region.

Although earthquakes are frequent across the globe, seismic activity along the ring of fire has been active of late. Temblors have been felt in Japan, Philippines, Chile and Peru over the past 24 hours, all registering above 4.0 on the seismic scale.

All locations are along what is called the "Ring of Fire" that encompasses a string of volcanoes and tectonic plates that start along the bottom of South America and swings up the coast, across the Bering Strait to Asia down to New Zealand.

The Ring of Fire also includes more than 400 volcanoes.
