Two moderate earthquakes hit one after the other near the California-Mexico border this morning, rattling residents of Baja California and in San Diego and Imperial Counties.

The first of the two struck near Calexico at 10:30 a.m. and registered as magnitude-4.9. That was followed three minutes later by a quake centered thirty miles west near Ocotillo, California with a 4.8 magnitude. Several small aftershocks have been logged since the pair first hit.

As a result of the temblors there have been no reports of damage or injury, according to abc7.
