Quake near Tecate felt in San Diego

An earthquake with a preliminary estimated magnitude of 4.5 struck Baja California Sunday, and was felt through much of San Diego County, but no damage was immediately reported.

The epicenter of the shaker, which struck at 1:35 p.m., was 21 miles
south of Tecate, or 40 miles southeast of downtown San Diego, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Police and fire officials in El Cajon, Kearny Mesa and Escondido
reported feeling the earthquake, but said they received no emergency calls.

Other officials in downtown San Diego and National City reported that
they didn’t feel it.

A 3.0 aftershock was measured at 1:40 p.m., followed by a 2.1 shock at
1:51.

The temblors were shallow — about a half mile deep — according to
preliminary data from USGS seismographs north of the border. Exact information about quakes in Baja Califrornia sometimes is revised, after seismologists examine data from sensors north of the border.

The epicenter for the quakes was estimated to be in the Santo Tomas
Valley, a vineyard area along Federal Highway 3 between Tecate and Ensenada.

Sunday’s quakes were centered about 45 miles southwest from Saturday’s
3.4 earthquake, on the San Diego-Imperial County line near Ocotillo.
