Swarm of earthquakes strikes southern San Diego County


Nearly two dozens earthquakes, including a magnitude 5.7 temblor, struck Monday night near the U.S.-Mexican border in southern San Diego County.

The largest of the quakes was recorded at 9:26 p.m. and was felt by residents across a wide swath of Southern California, including Los Angeles.

The temblor was centered five miles southeast of Ocotillo in San Diego County and 16 miles east-northeast of Jacumba in eastern San Diego County, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The others — ranging from 3.2 to 4.1 magnitude — were also concentrated in the same general area, according to the survey agency.

There were no immediate reports of damage.
