A moderate earthquake apparently rattled East County Saturday, according to preliminary reports from automated seismographs.
The quake, with an estimated magnitude 4.0, struck near Laguna Mountain at 1:37 p.m.
The epicenter was initially described as 19 miles south-southeast of Borrego Springs, or 54 miles east-northeast of San Diego.
The quake’s size and epicenter was not immediately reviewed by scientists, and those details are sometimes revised, seismologists have said.
