The USGS is reporting several small aftershocks in the Southern California desert following two moderate quakes that struck last night around 8 p.m. "Those temblors were followed by more than three dozen smaller earthquakes, which have continued well into Sunday morning," reports LA Now. The quakes are occurring in the Borrego Springs area; the initial two quakes were felt from San Diego to Los Angeles, however few people report feeling the many aftershocks, and there have been no reports of injuries or damage.
