Northern Mexico woke early Saturday to a 4.9 magnitude shaker near the US border. According to the US Geological Survey, the moderate earthquake hit Baja California at 4:52 a.m. near Guadalupe Victoria located a little over 100 miles south of San Diego.

FOX LA reports no notification of casualties or damages "from the earthquake, which occurred at a depth of six miles, in a zone parallel to the well-known San Andreas fault that runs through the US state of California."

Each lil quake is a big ol' reminder: Like a Boy Scout at a laser show, BE PREPARED.
