CALEXICO, Calif. — A moderate earthquake in northern Mexico was felt from San Diego to southwestern Arizona, but no injuries or damage were reported.
Seismologist Dale Grant of the U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-5.1 quake struck just before 4 p.m. Saturday. It was centered about 25 miles southeast of Calexico, Calif., and 23 miles southeast of Mexicali, Mexico, at a depth of 6.2 miles.
Several aftershocks followed, the largest a magnitude-4.2 about two hours after the initial quake.
The USGS has received reports of people feeling the quake from 120 miles west of the epicenter in San Diego, to 60 miles east in Yuma, Ariz.
Dispatchers with the Calexico Police Department say the station shook briefly but there were no reports of damage or injuries.

wow,we were pretty close to San Diego saturday afternoon and felt nothing
Of course, we were at some harbor festival and were either walking or riding atop those double decker buses and I doubt we could feel anything with all that was going on.
