Small earthquake rattles U.S.-Mexico border region
Associated Press

EL CENTRO, Calif. - A magnitude-4.8 earthquake hit the southeastern California desert Thursday, rattling buildings as far as San Diego. There were no reports of damages or injuries.

The temblor occurred at 6:27 p.m. near Obsidian Butte, about 26 miles north of El Centro, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. San Diego is about 100 miles to the west.

"Everything rolled for a while, kinda like being on a boat, then it settled back down," said Sgt. Gary Hayes of the Imperial County Sheriff's Department.

Dozens of small earthquakes have hit the southeast California desert since Wednesday.

The temblors have been in the Brawley seismic zone, which is known for having many quakes that strike closely together. The zone runs north to south and is connected on its northern end to the San Andreas Fault and its southern end with the Imperial Fault.

The earthquake swarm started Monday and typically takes a few days to build up and then a few days to taper off, said Kate Hutton, a staff seismologist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.

"It will die off," Hutton said. "It might not be right away, but it will."

If it was just that little one (center only fifteen miles from our house!) renegade bus linked to, then I'm glad. You feel something like this and you don't know if it was a huge one 150 miles away.
