A magnitude-4.7 earthquake was felt throughout San Diego County Monday, but there were no immediate reports of any injuries or damage.
The temblor struck at 9:55 a.m. and was centered 12 miles east-southeast of Anza in Riverside County, 14 miles southwest of La Quinta and 16 miles south-southwest of Palm Desert, according to a preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake was originally reported as large as a magnitude-5.2, but was downgraded a short time later by the USGS. The initial shaker was followed by dozens of aftershocks in the area.
The ground movement was stronger in eastern areas of San Diego County, and many people in coastal communities did not feel it at all, public-safety officials said. Dozens of comments at the Santee Patch Facebook page confirm that residents felt the quake shake many homes in East County San Diego.
