San Diego County quakes jiggle inland areas
JULIAN – (INT) – Another M3.1 earthquake has added to a series of temblors that began Wednesday in northeast San Diego County. It struck Friday evening and was felt over a limited area.
The sequence included an M4.0.
The quakes appear to share an epicenter between Borrego Springs and the mountain community of Julian. The location is just east of the Earthquake Valley fault, reportedly one of the most active systems in Southern California.
The strongest have been felt over parts of five counties and including the Inland Empire’s Metro area, the San Jacinto Mountains and the Coachella Valley.
An unrelated earthquake Saturday on the nearby San Jacinto Fault measured M3.5. It was centered between Anza and Aguanga in Riverside County.
There has been no reported damage.
