California: Earthquake shakes Portions of San Diego and Riverside Counties


    Reported by: San Diego 6 News Team


BORREGO SPRINGS - An earthquake was felt in portions of San Diego and Riverside Counties Thursday evening.

The magnitude 3.8 quake struck just before 5:00 p.m. and was centered about 10 miles north northwest of Borrego Springs and 59 miles northeast of downtown San Diego.

The quake was felt by many people in the northern two-thirds of San Diego County from the coast to the Salton Sea.   People in Palm Springs also reported feeling Thursday's quake.

Numerous people posted to the San Diego 6 Facebook page about the quake.   Letta Anglin said, "Felt it in Rancho Penasquitos."   

"Not so much felt it as heard it in Ramona, said Brooke Blackford in her posting.   "Felt it in Escondido," wrote Katie Ragsdale.

The quake was along the Coyote Creek Fault, which is north of where a 3.7 earthquake was centered Wednesday along the Elsinore Fault.

Quakes of this magnitude would not typically be expected to cause damage or injury, but can be felt by people over a wide area.
