3.5-magnitude earthquake rattles Riverside County

A magnitude-3.5 earthquake shook parts of Riverside County on Saturday, May 19.


The U.S. Geological Survey recorded the temblor at 12:26 p.m. with an epicenter near the Cahuilla Indian Reservation and about 9 miles southwest of Anza.


The quake was felt in Riverside, Temecula, Indio, Hemet, Cathedral City, Oceanside and San Diego, according to reports to the USGS.


No damage was immediately reported.


A 3.2-magnitude quake in the same location preceded the 3.5 by about 2 minutes.


In April, two earthquakes that measured above magnitude-3.0 had epicenters in the same vicinity as the latest one, according to USGS data.
