5.7 Earthquake Rattles San Diego

June 14, 2010

Looks like the earthquake which shook Southern California this evening measured 5.7 on the Richter Scale with an epicenter about 60 miles from Tijuana, Mexico.

Looks like there has been a cluster of recent earthquakes right on the California/Mexico border!

At Petco Park in San Diego, Toronto Blue Jays reliever Scott Downs had just retired David Eckstein and found himself standing on the mound when the stadium began shaking.

If you’re in Southern California…please share the experience. I’ve been in 4 large earthquakes, and everyone seemed to be a little different…

From the Associated Press:

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-5.7 quake was centered five miles southeast of Ocotillo near the U.S.-Mexico border. It struck Monday at about 9:30 PDT.

The quake was initially reported as a magnitude-5.9 temblor.

It was felt as a gentle rolling motion in Los Angeles, Long Beach and Orange County.
