This map from USGS shows the location and size of two moderate earthquakes that struck offshore from San Diego and Rosarito Beach, Baja California on Tuesday, May 25, 2010.

Two moderate, offshore earthquakes rattled San Diego and Baja California Tuesday night. The first, a magnitude 3.6, struck four miles west of Coronado at 8:52 p.m. The second earthquake struck 34 miles offshore from Rosarito Beach, Baja California five minutes later and had a preliminary magnitude of 4.3.

Antonio Rosquillas, Tijuana's Director of Civil Protection, says the quakes are not aftershocks from the 7.2 quake that struck south of Mexicali on Easter. 

There have been no reports of damage or injuries.
