LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Seismologists now say the earthquake that rolled across Los Angeles before dawn was magnitude 4.4.
 
The 6:25 a.m. Monday temblor was initially estimated at 4.7.
 
The quake was centered 15 miles west-northwest of the downtown civic center and occurred at a depth of about 5 miles. The Los Angeles Fire Department has received no immediate reports of damage.

The earthquake shocked LA news anchors at KTLA and the moment began circulating the internet in a must-watch clip. KTLA anchors Christ Schauble and Megan Henderson ducked under their desk when the quake hit.  Their moment of panic launched the term #QuakeFace on Twitter and people began sharing their own parodies of the moment.
