Series of Small Quakes Shake Up Imperial County
A set of several small earthquakes rattled Imperial County this morning, and are continuing to rumble gently beneath the surface, centered within about 5 miles of the Brawley area. Of the series, the largest was a 4.4 magnitude that hit at 11:16 a.m., about a quarter hour after a pair of jolts, one 3.7 and one a minute later at 3.5, as tracked by the USGS. Since then, the quakes have generally come in at 1- and 2- level magnitudes. "The quakes were felt in the region, but there were no reports of damage or injuries," notes LA Now.
