Over the last 12 hours another series of small earthquakes -- thought to be aftershocks from the 7.2 magnitude Mexicali Easter shaker -- have bobbled the California border.

The largest quake, registering a 4.2 magnitude, occurred around 11 p.m. Friday evening near Ocotillo, the town of the 21 vehicle motorcycle tragedy of last month.

Several 3-ish magnitude quakes followed, with no reports of damage or injuries according to the LA Times. About $100 million in damage in California alone, followed last year's Mexicali quake.
