Earthquake Hits Baja California And Local Regions

A mild earthquake rattled the East County highlands this morning, causing no reported structural damage or injuries.

The magnitude-3.9 quake, centered about eight miles northeast of Julian, struck at 10:44 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

About 90 minutes earlier, a 3.7-magnitude earthquake shook northern Baja California, about 17 miles southeast of Ocotillo, the federal agency reported.

The shakers followed a 3.9-magnitude earthquake that jostled roughly the same area just south of the U.S.-Mexico border late Wednesday night and a 4.1-magnitude earthquake that hit there early Thursday, according to the USGS.
