Magnitude-4.6 Earthquake And Series Of Smaller Quakes Shake Salton Sea Area
A magnitude-4.6 earthquake rattled Southern California on Friday night but no damage or injuries were reported.
The quake struck at 9:39 p.m. a few miles from the the town of Niland in Imperial County near the Salton Sea, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake was preceded and followed by a series of temblors of 3.0 or higher, including a magnitude-4.1 quake that occurred about 10 minutes after the larger quake.
The temblors occurred in the same region where a magnitude-5.3 quake hit last Saturday.
