Seismic activity on San Jacinto Fault’s ‘hot spot’
ANZA – (INT) – For the second time in as many days, a light earthquake has jiggled parts of Riverside and San Diego counties.
The quakes shared a familiar epicenter east-southeast of Anza.
Thursday’s M3.5 quake was followed by eight aftershocks within 2-hours. The initial jolt was felt from the surrounding mountains into the Coachella Valley, Southwest Riverside County and in parts of North San Diego County.
On Wednesday, more than a dozen aftershocks followed an M3.2 earthquake. It was centered 13-miles east southeast of Anza.
The epicenter is on one of the most active segments of the San Jacinto Fault.
