BORREGO SPRINGS, Calif., June 10 (UPI) -- A 5.2-magnitude earthquake rocked Southern California's Borrego Springs on Friday, leading to aftershocks felt throughout San Diego County and beyond.
The quake originated in a low-populated area at 1:04 a.m. local time and was felt as far away as Los Angeles, which is located about 100 miles from its epicenter. San Diego and Palm Springs also felt effects of the quake, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The community of Borrego Springs is home to about 3,000 residents; no injuries have been reported. Several aftershocks ranging from 2.9- to 3.8-magnitude have impacted the community and the nearby town of Anza, Calif., since the initial jolt.
USGS seismologist Lucy Jones reported her observations of aftershocks and other information regarding the earthquake on social media as they occurred. She wrote the original quake's epicenter was on the active San Jacinto fault, which she said was "the most active" in Southern California.
The fault is 130 miles long, spanning the Cajon Pass all the way to California's Mexican border.
San Jacinto is historically most active fault in SoCal. Today's EQ near locations of M6 in 1937 and M5.3 in 1980— Dr. Lucy Jones (@DrLucyJones) June 10, 2016
